If your girlfriend asks you to leave her apartment in the midst of an argument, it’s probably a good idea to do so, rather than try to kiss and make up.
“He told her they should stop fighting and went to kiss her,” Assistant State’s Attorney Eve Reilly told the Chicago Sun-Times, “and she bit off a large portion of his tongue.”
Reilly said Cook’s boyfriend ran to the sink bleeding. Cook followed him and threw the tongue on the counter. He put the piece into a bag of ice, and then he and Cook’s roommate called 911.
The boyfriend was rushed to Evanston Hospital, Reilly said, but doctors could not reattach the tongue because of inadequate blood supply, the Sun-Times reported.
The tongue-biter was arrested and was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
When asked about the incident, the boyfriend said he was in a lot of pain and that “talking is not the best thing to do right now.”
I can’t imagine Valentine’s Day will ever be the same again for this guy.
