Woman bit lover’s hand in party attack
A WOMAN sunk her teeth into her lover’s hand after a party in Poynton turned violent.
Joanne Elizabeth Smith, 46, attacked him twice after he complained about her being too loud and swearing too much, a court heard.
After poking her victim in the eye and slapping his face, Smith bit into his hand, prosecutors said.
At Macclesfield magistrates’ court Smith, of Moor Place, Liverpool, admitted assault by beating on June 12.
Debbie Byrne, prosecuting, said Smith was the victim’s ‘occasional’ lover as well as his elderly father’s carer.
She said: “They were at the home of a friend in Poynton.
“Both were drinking. However the defendant became louder and louder and was swearing a lot. She was asked to stop swearing but became argumentative.
“The victim tried to calm the defendant down. She then assaulted him. She poked him in the eye and slapped him in the face and pushed him of a chair. Witnesses tried to restrain her.
“A driver, picked up the defendant and complainant. As the car drove away she began attacking [the victim] by slapping. She then bit his hand.”
Smith will be sentenced on July 12.
