It’s always a worry for bride and groom alike what will befall you on your hen and stag nights, especially if you’ve got that one friend who takes jokery to the extreme. But what would you do if it was your husband who got himself into more than a spot of bother with his stag-do japery?
When Stephen Mallone was attending his bash with friends in Bratislava he fancied a spot of skinny dipping in a public fountain, which is embarrassing enough. Until you find out it got him arrested.
The local authorities arrested Stephen on May 26, for causing a public nuisance. He was then ‘fast tracked’ through the courts and was set to serve a two month jail sentence.
Stephens father was reported to have said his family wanted to: “unreservedly apologise for any distress or offence caused by Stephen to the people of Bratislava”. Stephens fiancée, Kerry Stokes was reported to have told the Mail on Sunday: “I am struggling to take it all in and it has made an already stressful time even worse.” She did say she’d still be going on her hen party though, so not all that distressed!
Happy endings all round for the couple though, thanks to Stephen’s local MP and his legal team. Stephen has been freed and will make it in time for his wedding after all.
