ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A little too much passion, perhaps. A St. Paul woman who became frightened Wednesday morning when her boyfriend squeezed her too tightly while they kissed bit off part of his tongue, police said. ``I guess I bit down too hard,'' the woman told officers, explaining that she has been victimized by men.
The woman, who is 43, was arrested for assault and could be charged Thursday in Ramsey County, investigators said.
The man who was bitten, who is 47 and also from St. Paul, walked with the woman from her home to a restaurant, where they called police around 3:10 a.m. He was taken to Regions Hospital, where he was treated and released.
Officers went to the woman's home to look for the tongue, but they couldn't find it.
The woman, who had been drinking with her boyfriend, told them she doesn't remember what happened to the end of his tongue. Police estimate that it measured about 1.5 inches.
She might have swallowed it, the woman said.
