We've heard of people doing a lot of strange things with cell phones, but attempting to swallow one may take the cake. A Blue Springs, Kansas woman halfway swallowed her phone (model unknown) to keep her boyfriend from having it. That's at least what she claims, but the police are still looking into it.

The woman was taken to the emergency room at St. Mary's Hospital in Blue Springs. She still had the telephone in her throat upon arrival at the hospital, Decker said.

UPDATE 12/26/05: The story has changed, this incident could have been assult according to the latest report.

"It appears she didn't voluntarily swallow this phone," [Police Sgt.] Kintz said. "It's not quite the way it was first portrayed."
