Connecticut isn’t the stodgy, conservative enclave that some people think.
From Fox News:
Cops: Woman Handcuffs Self to Husband, Bites Him
Tuesday, March 24, 2009
FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Connecticut woman attempting to reconcile with her husband handcuffed herself to him as he slept and then bit him on his torso and arms, police said.
Helen Sun, 37, told police she wanted to have a conversation with her husband Robert Drawbough without him leaving. They said she changed the locks on their bedroom and handcuffed herself to Drawbough while he was sleeping Monday.
Drawbough used a cell phone to call police. Officers heard his screams when they arrived at the couple’s Fairfield home. He was treated at a hospital.
Police charged Sun with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct, reckless endangerment and unlawful restraint. She was due in court on Tuesday.
The New York Post had more details:
Helen Sun, 37, of Bridgeport, told police she wanted to have a conversation with Robert Drawbough without him leaving, police told The Associated Press.
In order to do that, Sun said, she changed the locks on their bedroom door and as he slept Monday, handcuffed herself to him.
When Drawbough realized what had occurred, he called 911 from his cell phone, police said.
Almost out of breath, he told a police dispatcher that he had woken up handcuffed to his wife and was trying to hold her down, according to a recording released by police.
Dispatchers heard Drawbough scream in pain as his wife bit him.
Wow, this is all over the news wires. Yahoo News has a followup:
Asked by dispatchers why his wife was attacking him, Drawbaugh said he divorced her. He also said she has a history of violence.
Officers who went to the home in Fairfield heard Drawbaugh screaming for help and forced their way in through the front door.
Drawbaugh was treated at a hospital, police said. Sun told investigators that restraining Drawbaugh was the only way she could get him to speak to her, authorities said.
Police charged Sun with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct, reckless endangerment and unlawful restraint. She was being held on $15,000 bond after an appearance Tuesday in Bridgeport Superior Court, according to a court clerk. Sun was represented by a public defender who did not immediately return a message left by The Associated Press.
Drawbaugh, 32, has been living in Los Angeles and came back to Connecticut about a week ago, police said.
He told police his wife is obsessive and a danger to him and his friends and family. He said his wife hired private investigators to follow him, according to police.
Hmm. So, she’s got a history of violence, but he visited her and fell asleep in the same room?
“Okay, so ten out of ten for style, but minus several million for good thinking, yeah?”
