CENTER LINE, Mich. (AP) — A Detroit woman has been arrested after part of a male friend’s tongue was bitten off as they kissed.

Youlette Wedgeworth, 52, was arraigned Wednesday on a misdemeanor aggravated assault charge, according to the Macomb County prosecutor’s office.

Police were called to the man’s Center Line apartment, north of Detroit, Tuesday to find him bleeding from the mouth and missing an inch of his tongue. Officers found the missing portion of his tongue in a bedroom. The man was taken to a hospital for treatment.

According to WXYZ, Wedgeworth had asked him not to put his tongue in her mouth. When he did anyway, she bit it off.

Wedgeworth was jailed on a $25,000 bond. A Feb. 19 pretrial conference has been scheduled.
