Shocked by the argument, his fiance called her brother to the room.

Lawyer Tanya Surrey said her client had a & # 39; serious assessment error & # 39; made.
& # 39; He accepts that it was a serious error of judgment and he is sorry that he has put his wife and family in need – he has paid the price in more than one way, & # 39; she said, referring to the thousands of dollars lost by canceling the arranged prenuptial agreement.
Judge Dominic Flatley called drinking the man & # 39; out of control & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Here you used an iron and you hit the victim in the head three times … This could have gone terribly wrong. You could have seriously injured a person or even worse.
& # 39; I'm supposed to feel sorry for you because your wedding didn't go as planned? You brought this to yourself. & # 39;
