I’m not sure which is more confusing: why someone would blow good money on a “diamond and gold mouthpiece” or why a dentist would actually install one? One thing I’m not confused about: the category to file this one under… Idiots Bite.
A Leavenworth woman says she was jumped by several people who forcibly removed a gold mouthpiece that had been cemented to her teeth, according to a police spokesman.
The incident was reported Friday after the 37-year-old woman went to Cushing Hospital, said Maj. Robert Smith, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.
The woman told police she was attacked after she left a bar at about 1:30 a.m. Friday at Sixth and Cherokee streets. She was approached by five to six women.
“They came up behind her in the alleyway and began hitting her and forced her into a car,” Smith said.
The vehicle was driven away and the attackers continued to hit the woman.
The suspects reportedly began working to remove the victim’s 24-karat gold and diamond mouthpiece. They ended up breaking the woman’s teeth as they were removing the object, according to Smith.
