(Newser) – A British woman kicked at her boyfriend in a cab in the middle of drunken argument, driving her 3-inch stiletto heel into his eye to his brain. "The heel went through the left eye of Gavin Taylor and fractured the socket and entered his brain and caused a blood vessel to burst," a prosecutor told a jury yesterday.

He screamed, "My eye! My eye!" before coughing blood and passing out, said witnesses. He was rushed to a hospital where he underwent two surgeries and stayed for a month before recovering. Accused attacker Staci Hargreaves, 33, has told cops she doesn't recall the attack, reports the Daily Mail. Her trial is ongoing.
