Connecticut police say a woman attempting to reconcile with her husband handcuffed herself to him as he slept and then bit him on his torso and arms. Helen Sun, 37, told police she wanted to have a conversation with husband Robert Drawbough without him leaving. Police say she changed the locks on their bedroom and handcuffed herself to Drawbough while he was sleeping yesterday.

Drawbough used a cell phone to call police. Officers heard his screams when they arrived at the couple's Fairfield home. He was treated at a local hospital. Police charged Sun with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct, reckless endangerment and unlawful restraint. She was due in Bridgeport Superior Court today. (Read more handcuffs stories.)
