Rhys Weatherbur and his partner Shannon Fidge had a romantic dinner in The Ritz in London, England, on Valentine’s Day that ended in violence. When the couple, that were in a relationship for around a year and a half, entered their hotel room and Ms Fidge refused to have sex the young man lost his temper.
He shook her hands aggressively and pushed her onto the bed ordering to shut up and saying: “We are in a hotel, we are going to have sex.” The girl started screaming when he jumped onto her and security officers detained him before throwing out from the 5-star hotel.
While in court Rhys amitted that he had problems with alcohol and had no recollection of what had happened that night. He said:
“I understand I have a severe and very, very serious problem with alcohol and how it affects me when I have consumed to excess. My own girlfriend is going to stand by me and stay with me. She knows that it was not me that night, it was me under a horrible influence.”
