Groom speaks out after arrests on Ryanair flight

Pilot makes emergency landing after aggressive behaviour
A groom whose stag party caused a plane to be diverted to Berlin following unruly behaviour has admitted the actions of the group were “unacceptable”.
Joshua Mariner spoke out after saying he would take legal action against the German police who wrongly said in a statement that he had been arrested along with his mates.
He insists he was not among the six men who were arrested following their rowdy behaviour on board the Ryanair flight from London to Bratislava.
Mariner, 26, told the Southern Daily Echo newspaper, “The lads’ behaviour was unacceptable and they will now have to suffer the consequences of their actions. It was reported by German police that I was one of the lads arrested, which isn’t true, and I will be seeking legal advice as it has caused a lot of distress for me and my family.”
The six men could face fines of up to £20,000 (€25,640) after the plane was forced to make an unscheduled landing when trouble broke out.
The pilot decided to make the emergency landing in the German capital when the men allegedly became aggressive after being refused alcohol. Reports emerged that one of the men had stripped naked on the flight.
Local police said the drunk men, aged 25 to 28, were met by officers on landing at Berlin Schoenefeld on Friday evening. They were taken into custody and held but later released.
