Woman Arrested After Biting Her Husband During Sex

| by Kathryn Schroeder

Police arrested an Ohio woman vacationing in Florida for biting her husband during sex at a Key West hotel.

When a hotel employee learned of a verbal dispute coming from room 409, she called the police, Florida Keys Keynoter reports. She then called the room and a crying man answered the phone.

The husband of Jennifer M. Rahe Hickman, a dental hygienist from Mason, Ohio, told police that he and his wife had been drinking at the pool area when they decided to retreat back to their room to have sex. Hickman became angry, accused her husband of using her and then bit him on his left forearm, according to police.

As police arrested Hickman, the couple's son got between officers and Hickman, who was lying on a beach chair with her eyes closed. When officers threatened to arrest him, he got out of their way.

Hickman, while being handcuffed by police, said multiple times, "I'm going to [expletive] kill him," the police report states.

“She continued yelling and screaming the entire ride to the jail,” Officer Daniel Blanco wrote in the report.

Also in the police report, teeth is recorded as the weapon used in the assault.

Police charged Hickman with misdemeanor domestic battery.

Teeth, which can be used as weapons, were a part of a double murder charge in Florida.

In October, police charged college student Austin Harrouff, then 19, in the August killings of John Stevens, 59, and Michelle Mishcon, 53, at their home, according to The Washington Post.

Authorities also charged him with the attempted murder of Jeff Fisher, who Harrouff stabbed when he ran to help the couple.

When a sheriff's deputy responded to the 911 call, he allegedly found Harrouff shirtless and on top of a man he had apparently just stabbed, "biting and removing pieces of the victim's face with his teeth," Sheriff William Snyder said.

The female deputy fired her stun gun at Harrouff, but it did not have any effect on him. Nor did punching and kicking him, as other deputies did, or a bite from a police dog.

“He was exhibiting abnormal levels of strength,” Snyder told reporters after the attack.

It took four deputies and the police dog to subdue Harrouff. He made "guttural sounds and animal noises" while in custody, Snyder said.

Police suspected Harrouff was under the influence of hallucinogenic drugs like bath salts or flakka, which sends a surge of adrenaline through the body, giving a person superhuman strength and a high tolerance for pain. It also raises a person's temperature to 104 or 105 degrees, causing them to rip off their clothes.
