Jail Time for Groom Knockout

Associated Press - November 4, 2015 7:02 am

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita man has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison after hitting a just-married groom at an IHOP last August.

District Attorney Marc Bennett says 23-year-old Oliver Bradwell was sentenced Oct. 21 to 45 months in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated battery in July.

Newly married Omar Galaviz-Hernandez and his wife, whose name was not provided, were eating at an east-side IHOP in their wedding clothes.

A news release from Bennett says Bradwell hit Galaviz-Hernandez after Galaviz-Hernandez had told him to “show some respect” when Bradwell “made a derogatory comment toward” the bride. Galaviz-Hernandez fell and hit his head, knocking him unconscious.

Bradwell was ordered to pay more than $12,600 in restitution as part of 36 months of post-release supervision.
