A Spanish bride spent her wedding night in jail after she hit a policeman trying to break up a brawl between her family and relatives of the groom, police said on Tuesday.

The fight broke out just as the newly weds were about to leave the reception in a hotel in Salou, a resort 150 kilometres (90 miles) southwest of Barcelona.

Alerted by shouts from the ballroom where some 30 guests were partying on October 10, the hotel owners called police to separate the feuding families.

The unidentified bride grabbed one officer by the neck and slapped him. She was held at a police station for several hours before being allowed to rejoin her husband.
