The woman, Joyce Maxine Gregory, is accused of forcibly “squeezing a man’s testicle out of his scrotum” after the two got into an altercation early Saturday morning. The 59-year-old man told police he went outside to call 911, at which point Gregory came after him and grabbed him by the scrotum so hard it resulted in castration.
Police summoned to the scene found Gregory inside the home where the altercation had occurred, and immediately arrested her. Once inside the police car, however, Gregory reportedly removed her pants and urinated on the backseat.
Gregory is charged with malicious castration and assault with serious bodily injury, according to the county sheriff’s office. She is being held on $20,000 bond.
A urologist at the Cleveland Regional Medical Center—where the castrated man was admitted for medical attention—told police stitches could repair the man’s damage.
