Man Who Bit Off Woman's Ear in Beaumont Probably Not Mike Tyson
Actual medical diagram.
Some days just don't go the way you want. There you are, in line at a convenience store, minding your own business, just trying to buy some Skittles and beef jerky, and out of nowhere, some dude sneaks up behind you and bites your damn ear off! You'd be surprised at how often that happens in East Texas. Want proof?
According to Beaumont Police, a female customer at the Honey Stop store in Beaumont was just trying to buy some smokes when a man described as black, 6 feet tall, weighing 200 pounds and wearing a black jacket, black pants with a white stripe and a black knit cap strolled up behind her and bit her DAMN EAR OFF!
Given the description, I think we can safely say it wasn't Mike Tyson. He's 5 foot 10 inches and almost 240. So, Iron Mike, you're off the hook.
But, seriously, who just grabs somebody and bites their ear off? Okay, not the whole ear, part of it, but still. That's nasty. Several other customers in the store tried to get the man off of the victim when he grabbed her by the neck, but he bit her during the scuffle. Witnesses say the suspect fled in a red Chevrolet truck.
Though it wasn't in the report, we assume the victim was okay though she's got a messed-up ear thanks to some crazy person who decided her ear was a snack he just couldn't pass up.
