According to prosecutors, a Pennsylvania couple’s wedding ended in a drunken brawl after the groom hit on an underage waitress — then followed the teen into a bathroom stall and groped her. 31-year-old Matthew Aimers was charged Wednesday in connection to the nightmare nuptials November 24th at a country club in Northampton Valley. Court documents detail a wedding from hell in which the groom left in handcuffs. The newlywed now faces numerous charges, including indecent assault, imprisonment of a minor, and disorderly conduct. During the reception, Aimers allegedly hit on a teen waitress and “asked her to go outside and make out.” The waitress said she rejected him. But he later followed her into the women’s bathroom, pulling her into a stall, where he allegedly groped her and exposed himself. Police later responded to reports of a fight at the country club and found the groom “pushing and punching people.” A brief struggle ensued before police took Aimers into custody. (

Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!
A Parasite Destroys the Tongue of a Fish and Replaces Its Tongue With Its Own Body. Pretty much the creepiest creature ever. This isopod, Cymothoa exigua, enters a fish through its gills and attaches to its tongue. From there it severs the blood vessels connecting to the tongue (which causes it to fall off) and attaches itself to the stub that’s left, taking over the food consumption from that point forward.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
A man’s nap in the back of his car in Delaware turned into a nightmare after the car he was sleeping in was stolen and crashed. Musician Justin Koerner told the News Journal he had spent a night playing music with friends, went to sleep in his vehicle, and had a dream involving someone jumping in his front seat. A Newark police statement says someone drove off in the car Sunday morning and bailed after seeing the man sleeping in the back. Police say the car crashed. Koerner says he awoke and saw car treads on a lawn and a destroyed bush, then realized he hadn’t been dreaming. He says police appeared ready to take him away before another officer said a neighbor had security camera footage of the incident. (
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A Florida man has been charged with pointing a laser at a law enforcement helicopter. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office helicopter was monitoring a fire in Clearwater early Sunday when its crew spotted the laser coming from a nearby yard. A sheriff's office statement says 48-year-old Brian Harting shined a red laser at the helicopter three times from his backyard. According to the statement, Harting told deputies that he did not know it was illegal to aim a laser at the aircraft. Harting was charged with felony misuse of a laser lighting device and held at the county jail. Bond was set at $25,000. Jail records did not show whether Harting had an attorney. He had been released from the jail Feb. 10th after posting bond on a heroin possession charge. (
