Man wins $46,000 from glue-crazy ex

GREENSBURG, Pa., Nov. 8 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania man was awarded more than $46,000 in damages after suing a former girlfriend for gluing his body parts together while he was napping.

Kenneth Slaby told a Westmoreland County jury he and his then-girlfriend Gail O'Toole had used fingernail polish and paint to spice up sex, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The jury agreed with his assertion that O'Toole took it too far in May 2000 when she glued his stomach and penis together, his testicles to his legs and his rectum shut.

She also painted swearwords on his body.

O'Toole then forced him to walk to a gas station to call 9-1-1.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review said O'Toole disputed Slaby's account but was unable to get into details in court. She pleaded guilty in June 2000 and received six months probation.

Her lawyer said she took the plea to avoid jail time, but that kept her from going into anything beyond her criminal testimony in the civil court case.
