Police in Michigan say a woman bit off an inch of a man’s tongue on Tuesday during a consensual kiss.
Youlette Wedgeworth, 52, is facing a charge of aggravated assault after the injury, Detroit’s Fox 2 reported.
The consensual kiss-turned-tongue bite unfolded in the victim’s apartment in Center Line, a community about 15 miles north of Detroit.
Officers responded to a call from the house, where they found the man bleeding from his mouth. A piece of his tongue – measuring approximately one inch long – was found in a bedroom, WDIV reported.
The victim was taken to an area hospital, and Wedgeworth was arrested.
The accused appeared Wednesday at Center Line’s 37th District Court, where a judge set a $25,000 cash bond surety.
Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith told WDIV it was “the first case of this nature in my 27 years in the prosecutor’s office.”
Wedgeworth’s pre-trial conference is scheduled for next month.
