UPDATE: The original police report from Germany did indeed appear to suggest that the groom had been arrested but this has now been retracted and by all accounts whilst six men were arrested, the groom did go on to Bratislava to ‘enjoy’ his stag night less half of the party.
SO RIOTOUS were six members of a British stag party flying from Luton to Bratislava in Slovakia that the pilot of the Ryanair flight decided that for the safety of his passengers, he would have to divert to Berlin to have them removed on the evening of February 26.
There were actually 12 members of the party on the flight, but six of them, including the groom became so drunk that when the cabin crew refused to serve any more alcohol they allegedly became abusive and for some reason, one member of the group stripped off.
Upon landing at the Berlin airfield, police who had been pre-alerted to the problem boarded the aircraft and arrested the six men whilst the flight continued with the other six who had not been arrested flying on to celebrate the stag night without the groom.
Those arrested were later released but not only did they have to find their own way out of Germany but could also be fined up to €25,000 for their actions and probably face travel bans from various airline in the future.
