A New Year's Kiss To Remember
Police: Woman Bites Man's Lip Off
Jan 7, 2010
One of the first crimes committed in Dallas in 2010 was a particularly gruesome act of family violence, according to police.
About midnight on New Year's Eve, Kerri Lyn Smith (right), 41, was kissing her boyfriend of four years in Far North Dallas when Smith bit the man's bottom lip and tore it off his face, according to police documents.
The man was able to push Smith away and call 911. He told officers Smith bit him suddenly and began yelling at him. It's unclear what would have prompted Smith to do such a thing.
Police officers called to the 18900 block of Lina Street near Rosemeade Parkway and the Dallas North Tollway saw part of the lip on the ground, police documents said.
The man, who has a 2-year-old son with Smith, told police he did not want to press charges. Officers arrested her anyway on a charge of aggravated assault/family violence. The man was treated at a Plano hospital.
