After going out on date on Valentine's Day, Elaine Cook and her boyfriend of 10 months returned to her apartment in Chicago and got in a fight. She asked him to leave, but the unnamed man, hoping to get lucky (it was Valentine's Day, after all) tried to end the argument and leaned in for a kiss, but Elaine had no time for that: She bit off a large chunk of his tongue and spit it out onto a counter. The man put the tongue in a bag of ice and called 911, but but doctors could not reattach the tongue because of an inadequate blood supply. Elaine was arrested and is charged with aggravated domestic battery and remains jailed on a $100,000 bond. While he lost his tongue, the man is not ready to give up Elaine.
Here's a photo of the couple in happier times.
