John Twombly, Iowa Man, Arrested At His Own Wedding

John Twombly Wedding Arrest


John Twombly didn’t exactly get what he expected on his wedding night.

What he did receive was a night in jail and a mug shot.

Twombly, 31, allegedly became enraged at the wedding reception after he felt one of the groomsmen was dancing inappropriately with his bride, Khamla. According to a police report obtained by the The Des Moines Register the man seemed “very intoxicated” when police arrived at his wedding on Saturday.

Documents say Twombly approached and pushed Cullen so hard that Cullen lost his balance and knocked over a ceramic column near where an off-duty police officer was sitting on a stool.

That’s when things went from bad to worse.

According to the Fox News Report (which you can see for yourself below) the fight continued as the off-duty officer called for backup. Twombly was eventually subdued, but not before first allegedly assaulting one of the officers.

Whether or not the police response was appropriate is a different story. “The police officer completely lost it,” John Ellsworth Frederick Schildberg III, a wedding guest that came to Twombly’s aid, told Fox. “I didn’t touch the officer at all except on his bicep, and he went berserk on me. … He pinned my head down with his knee.”

The Des Moines Register reported that as many as 20 officers possibly responded to the original call.

Twombly was charged with a slew of offenses including criminal mischief, tw ocounts of assault on an officer, and disorderly conduct.

This is the second wedding incident in the past few days, though the last arrest involved the bride instead of the groom. Tammy Lee Hinton was arrested for identity theft at her own wedding last week just moments after saying “I do.”

  1. The story is completely incorrect and the mug shot you have IS NOT the correct one. Jake received a fractured skull and his face is fractured in 3 places. The article doesnt explain that Mr. Twombly was handcuffed before he was so brutally attacked by one of the police on the department. How can a person handcuffed be a threat to 20 policemen??

      • Travis Cullen is the one that accidentally bumped the cop into the wall after he was pushed into him by Mr. Twombly. He asked the cop if he was ok and he said yes. Then the cop got on his radio and said officer down! Travis told the officer that everything was under control and that back up wasnt needed. By calling for back up Officer Phipps single handedly destroyed a wedding, a family, and a career! After that the 50 officers showed up guns blazing and beat the living hell out of Twombly. HE DID NOT DO ANYTHING BUT TELL THEM TO LEAVE A PRIVATE PARTY!
        Officer Cody Grimes beat Twombly and while he did this Twombly was handcuffed!
        The police did not and would not take statements from anyone but from Officer Phipps, the cop who called for the back up.
        The Des Moines poloce department are now trying to cover this whole incident up and went to the extent of using a the incorrect “mug shot” of Twombly with no marks, black eye or signs that he was beaten to a pulp.

        Hoping this link works and if it does it will show you the actual mug shot of Twombly after being beaten.
