A Lehigh Acres man spent his wedding night in jail after he got aggressive with wedding guests and deputies, the sheriff’s office said Monday.

Lee County deputies said they found Jeffery Johnson, 22, being restrained by wedding guests Saturday on Trinity Street East in Lehigh Acres. Johnson had been drinking with friends and family before becoming aggressive with the guests, the LCSO report states.

While deputies were gaining control of the situation, Johnson turned on them, kicking, battering and spitting on them as they tried to calm him down, according to LCSO.

None of the deputies were injured.

Johnson is facing one count of battery and two counts of battery on law enforcement officers. He was released from jail Sunday on $15,000 bond.
