Quick-Thinking Cops Devise Single Best Way To Aid Bloody Perp. Period.
With a drunken suspect bleeding from a forehead gash, quick-thinking Wisconsin cops “utilized a Feminine Napkin” to stanch the wound as they waited for emergency service workers to arrive and properly bandage the perp, according to a sheriff’s report.
Eli Cousineau, 33, was busted Sunday night after allegedly getting intoxicated and causing a disturbance at a Union Grove apartment building. As two Racine County Sheriff’s Department deputies sought to handcuff Cousineau, he stumbled and struck his head on a metal door frame.
After the bloody Cousineau was placed in her cruiser, Deputy Stacy Grobe reported that her male partner “utilized a Feminine Napkin to attempt to control the bleeding to Cousineau’s forehead.” The report does not indicate how Grobe’s partner sourced the sanitary device.
Pictured at left, Cousineau was eventually transported to a Racine hospital, where he received five stitches above his left eyebrow. He has been charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
