Some people will go to fisticuffs to get their point across, and others will go to, well, handcuffs.
Such was the case of an American women having marital problems who desperately wanted to talk to her husband after he apparently decided to leave her. Helen Sun, 37, was arrested Tuesday after sneaking into Robert Drawbough's bedroom and handcuffing herself to him while he slept so they could talk. Drawbough, frightened by his wife's antics, however, called police immediately and begged the dispatcher for help after his wife began biting and scratching him.
In his call to 911, Drawbough tries to explain to the dispatcher what his wife has done to him.
"My wife has handcuffed me and I need some assistance! She's handcuffed me and she's attacking me and I have not done anything to her. She has a record of violence, please come and help me get out of here!"
When the dispatcher asks him if he can free himself from his wife, he desperately screams, "No, she's handcuffed herself to me, please send police!"
Later in the call, Drawbough begins screaming in pain and tells the dispatcher his wife is biting him. The dispatcher then asks him why she would do this to him.
Drawbough: "Because I divorced her and tried leaving, and [screams in pain multiple times]."Finally, about three minutes into the call, police arrive and kick down the door to his Fairfield home. They freed Drawbough from his wife and arrested her.
Dispatcher: "What is she doing that's making you--"
Drawbough: "She's biting my arm!"
Drawbough was treated at a local hospital for bite marks and scratches to his torso and arms.
Sgt. James Perez told WCBS that Sun had an unusual explanation for the incident.
"She basically said, this is the only way I can get him to talk. So she wanted him to be there with her and to hear her out exclusively with no distractions, so that’s’ why she decided to handcuff him,"
