Man "concerned for his safety" throws a woman against a wall, grabs her by the neck. Woman concerned for the safety of another woman reports an incident to the police, and is attacked by the Press and threatened with exposure. Can you see what they are yet?

Ah, I've got it now. These are the Loud Drunk Aunts, obligatory at every wedding. They do not seem to be drunk yet, just chatty, but it's a long flight so I expect that to change.
