Police: Boyfriend Charged In Cell-Phone Assault

A man has been charged with felony assault after he allegedly shoved a phone down his girlfriend's throat.

The Missouri woman who was taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center in Blue Springs with a cell phone lodged in her throat may not have voluntarily swallowed the device.

“Subsequent investigation found that she didn’t swallow the cell phone voluntarily,” Police Sgt. Allen Kintz told the Associated Press. “Our initial press release was that she had swallowed a cell phone.”

The 24-year-old woman’s boyfriend has been charged with felony assault after he allegedly shoved the phone down his girlfriend’s throat in an argument.

The cell phone was removed from her throat by doctors at the hospital.
