The term "ball and chain" is supposed to be figurative -- but Helen Sun took it to a more literal place when she handcuffed herself to her estranged husband in an attempt to reconcile with him.
Police in Connecticut say that Sun, 37, told them she wanted to have a conversation with husband Robert Drawbough without him leaving. So, OBVIOUSLY, she changed the locks on their bedroom and handcuffed herself to Drawbough while he was sleeping.
...And then proceeded to bite his arms and torso. You know - to wake him up for the talking!
But instead of dishing on how his day went, Drawbough grabbed his cell phone and called the cops - who charged Sun with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct, reckless endangerment, unlawful restraint, and impersonating Houdini without a license (which is still a crime in imaginary Connecticut).
