Dec. 7, 2010 at 5:10 PM

SHEBOYGAN, Wis., Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Police in Wisconsin said they arrested a woman who bit her 79-year-old husband's tongue off during a kiss.

Investigators said the Sheboygan man called 911 at about 11 p.m. Monday and an ambulance and police were dispatched to the home when operators had difficulty understanding the man, the Sheboygan (Wis.) Press reported Tuesday.

Officers said they arrived to find the man and his wife, 57, singing Christmas carols outside of their home. Sgt. Doug Teunissen said the man revealed half of his tongue had been bitten off by his wife while they were kissing inside shortly earlier.

The man was initially taken to the Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center and later transferred to Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital in Wauwatosa.

The man requested his wife not be arrested, but she was taken into custody on suspicion of mayhem-domestic violence.
