A woman bit the tongue off the man she was kissing after she asked him to stop using it but he continued to anyway.
52-year-old Youlette Wedgeworth, sank her teeth into her lover’s tongue during the horrifying incident on January 28.
She had requested that he did not use his tongue as part of the kiss.
When he ignored her request, she bit down – removing around an inch of the victim’s tongue.
Detroit police were called to the scene in Center Line, Michigan.
They found the man in his bedroom bleeding profusely from the mouth and missing a sizeable chunk of tongue. Officers managed to find the piece of tongue and took it, and the victim, to hospital.
Wedgeworth has been charged with aggravated assault, a misdemeanour punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000 (£800).
