US woman arrested after shackling self to husband 美婦女銬上自己與丈夫後被捕


An American woman handcuffed herself to her sleeping husband in an apparent attempt to resolve an argument, but police ended up breaking into their home and charging her with assault and other crimes, authorities said on Tuesday.


Helen Sun, 37, handcuffed herself to Robert Drawbough as he slept in their Fairfax, Connecticut, home on Monday in an effort to reconcile their differences, police said.


But when Drawbough called police with his cell phone, Sun responded by biting him on the arms and torso, police said.


Police officers heard screams when they arrived at the home and forced their way in, said Chris Lyddy of the Fairfield Police Department.


Sun was charged with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct, reckless endangerment and unlawful restraint. She was released on a $400 bond.
