A 35-year-old woman from North Carolina is accused of squeezing and tearing a man’s testicle out of his scrotum this past weekend, according to a Shelby Police report.
Police charged Joyce Maxine Gregory with malicious castration and assault inflicting serious bodily injury.
Gregory and a 59-year-old Shelby man argued early Saturday morning at a home on Bowman Street, according to a Shelby Police report.
The man told police he went outside to call 911 after the confrontation.
The man said Gregory came outside and grabbed him by his scrotum before he was able to jerk away from her grip.
Then, the man walked to the Shelby Rescue Squad building for help. He was taken to Cleveland Regional Medical Center.
A hospital urologist told police stitches could repair the man’s injury.
Police officers on the scene went back to search the Bowman Street home. They found Gregory inside and arrested her.
While inside an officer’s patrol car, Gregory removed her pants and urinated in the back seat.
She was taken to the magistrate’s office at the Cleveland County Courthouse after the incident and booked into the Cleveland County Detention Center.
She is being held without bond.
