It’s a case of kiss and yell.
A Detroit woman is facing an assault charge after Macomb County authorities say she bit off the tip of her friend’s tongue when they were kissing.
They say she bit off about a 1-inch piece of the Center Line man’s tongue.
“I believe this is the first case of this nature in my 27 years in the Prosecutor’s Office,” Prosecutor Eric Smith said Thursday in a release.
Youlette Wedgeworth, 52, is being held in the county jail after Smith’s office charged her Wednesday with one count of aggravated assault, a one-year misdemeanor.
Authorities allege that she was visiting her 68-year-old friend at his apartment in Center Line on Tuesday. They were engaging in consensual kissing, and she bit off the tip of the man’s tongue, according to the release from Smith’s office.
Police arrived and found the man bleeding from his mouth and missing a piece of his tongue, measuring about about 1 inch, the release stated.
It stated that police were able to recover the piece of tongue in the bedroom of the man’s apartment.
