(Scroll down for video) A man lost his one of his testicles after his girlfriend ripped his scrotum during an argument about his cheating behind her back with other women, according to police in India.

The Michigan City Police Department said that they have arrested 36-year-old Tara Danielle Pegues, after being accused of seriously injuring 38-year-old Anthony Black.

Pegues has been charged with domestic battery, aggravated battery and resisting law enforcement. She was booked into jail, and her bail has been set at $25,000.

According to the criminal complaint, police were called to the 600 block of Spring Street, on a report of a domestic disturbance around 4:00 p.m. on Thursday.

When they arrived, police heard the couple shouting. Pegues and Black repeatedly told police that they were only arguing and the fight never became physical.

As Black was talking to the police, he bent down and picked up something that rolled on the ground. Black then changed his story, saying that he cut his scrotum and that his testicle had just fallen to the ground.

Black was taken to the Franciscan Health Michigan City, where he was treated for his wound. After being separated from his girlfriend, Black told police that Pegues was angry about his cheating with another woman.

At some point, Black tried to leave the house, but Pegues blocked him and grabbed his testicles, causing one to fall out of his scrotum.
