Ameryst Blaylock, 26, made her first court appearance on Monday to answer to charges of felonious assault and domestic violence after police say she bit off a portion of her husband’s lip during an argument earlier this month.
According to court documents, Ameryst and her husband Thomas had been involved in some sort of verbal altercation in the early morning hours of March 9, when the woman went ballistic
She allegedly punched Thomas Blaylock in the face before declaring that if he didn’t want her anymore, she’d make damn sure no one would ever want him again.
She then pounced on him, bit off the right side of his lower lip and spit it out.
Unfortunately for him, the injury was too extensive for the lip to be reattached.
In court, Thomas Blaylock claimed he is in no danger and asked the judge to lift a no-contact order so he and his “loving” wife could attend marriage counseling.
“It was a one time thing,” Thomas told the court. “Not sure what happened, but my wife is the most loving, caring person I’ve ever met in my life and this was due to the influence of alcohol and we were in the process of trying to eradicate that issue in our lives and we’d like to further that.”
The judge modified the order and replaced it with what he calls a no-negative contact order. That will allow to couple to have contact, but if there is any sort of disagreement between the pair, Ameryst must leave.
Ameryst posted $25,000 bond and has since been released from jail.
Her case is expected to be presented to a grand jury, which will decide whether more serious charges are warranted.
