Woman bites boyf in wedding tackle

Sometimes attack with a dog figurine just isn't enough

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

A word of warning this fine autumn afternoon: do not mess with 49-year-old Constance Marie Manning of Fort Wayne, Indiana, who is as far as we're aware still in Allen County Lockup on a "felony count of criminal recklessness and a misdemeanour count of domestic battery". This follows her attacking her boyf with multiple weapons including a knife, a dog figurine, and her laughing gear.

According to the local News-Sentinel, cops were called to a house at around 1:50 am last Wednesday, where Manning's boyfriend informed them that a row had developed into a "tussle" when she wouldn't let him leave the premises.

Manning hit the poor chap with a dog figurine, and "then began to bite him in the groin area". He told officers he "began hitting her to defend himself", but when Manning finally released his wedding tackle she promptly "grabbed a kitchen knife and began swinging at him".

The man said he finally fled the house with Manning in pursuit, suffering "swelling and cuts to the around his left eye and ear". The damage down below is not recorded, but the dog figurine did not survive the ordeal. ®
