Lovers Quarrel on Valentine’s Day Turns Bloody

March 3rd, 2013 at 8:00 am

loveOn Thursday February 14th, a couple celebrated Valentine’s Day with a night on the town.  Skokie resident Elaine Cook, 51, and her boyfriend later returned to her apartment and got into a fight.  The altercation became bloody when Cook bit her boyfriend’s tongue.

At first, Cook requested that her boyfriend of ten months to leave.  She became even more upset when he attempted to kiss her goodnight.  Cook bit off a chunk of her boyfriend’s tongue.  She was arrested and charged with aggravated domestic battery and is being held in place of a $100,000 bail.

The boyfriend, who asked not to be named in the press, put the portion of his tongue on ice in an attempt to have it reattached.  An ambulance was called by Cook’s roommate and transported the boyfriend to Evanston Hospital.  Unfortunately, the doctors were unable to reattach the chunk of tongue due to a lack of blood flow.

At this point, the 47 year old man from Chicago is unsure what the next step will be.  He reported that “It’s just sad. The whole thing.  I’m in a lot of pain and I’m not sure what direction I’m going to at this point.”  He does know that he doesn’t want to see Cook in jail or have her life ruined.

Most people are not lucky enough to have charges dropped when a crime is committed.  The reality of this situation is that Cook might be tried and found guilty of domestic abuse.  If you have been accused of assault, it is important to have the legal guidance of a professional.  Contact a knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer in Cook County to protect your reputation and future.
