Frenchman ruins his wedding after running over policeman

A Frenchman has been accused of deliberately running over a policeman while on his stag night meaning his bride was forced to cancel their wedding.


The 27-year-old Frenchman admitted that he had had "a little too much to drink" when he plowed into a regional policeman while on his stag night late last week. 
"It was 2am, I was a little drunk because I had just celebrated my stag night because I'm getting married on Saturday (the following day)," the man said, the Midi Libre newspaper reported on Wednesday. 
"I was driving a little fast and I didn't manage to see them."
Police say the man "deliberately" drove at them while they were on duty in Saint-Jean-de-Vedas, a town in southern France, the paper reported.
It remains unknown if the police officers sustained any injuries from the incident.
The motorist is said to have had a blood alcohol level of 0.6 at the time. 
The groom-to-be is set to remain in police custody until his trial on September 28th so his wedding had to be cancelled.
The Local has been unable to contact the bride for comment.
