A woman got arrested after allegedly biting off her boyfriend’s tongue during a passionate kiss.
Report has it thata woman by name; Shakeia Long, 37, was sharing a snog with Dwayne Williams, 41, when she chomped down and removed a chunk of his tongue.
Horrified Williams managed to grab the piece of flesh and fled Long’s apartment, in Hartford,
Connecticut, the Hartford Courant reported.
He is believed to have flagged down a passing police officer and was taken to hospital, according to an arrest warrant seen by the local paper.
Williams struggled to speak but was able to tell the officer “She bit off my tongue”, the warrant says.
Williams was taken to nearby St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center where the detached piece of tongue was placed on ice.
Williams told investigators he had lost a lot of blood and began losing consciousness, the warrant alleges.
Medics tried in vain to reattach the large chunk of tongue, the Courant reports.
Hartford police spoke to Williams after his release from the hospital and tried to track down his alleged attacker.
Long, who has a child with Williams, was quizzed by officers and admitted she had smoked PCP with Williams at the time, authorities said.
In the woman’s statement, she claims she “was not aware of his injuries or how they occurred”.
Long was charged with first-degree assault and appeared in court this week .
She also faces a charge of violating the terms of her probation from a 2013 second-degree assault conviction.
Long is due back in court March 31.
