The story of the Blue Springs woman who supposedly swallowed a cell phone to keep it away from her boyfriend is a good lesson: there are two sides to every story.
Blue Springs police - and The Star, and this blog - reported the story based on only the boyfriend's account; the woman was in the hospital and couldn't talk. Here's the first page of the original police report with the officer's narrative:
- Reporting party stated other party didn't want him to have cell phone so she attempted to swallow it. Other party was transported to St. Mary's to have the cell phone removed.
Turns out, the case is a pretty nasty assault instead, allegedly. The suspect, who surrendered today, is pictured here.
