Biting man's ear may net 10-year jail term

A 27-year-old man bit his 45-year-old neighbor's ear off during a brawl at a village in southwestern Poland, a report said Monday.
The younger man, who apparently started the quarrel, could face 10 years in jail, Polish Radio said.

During the fight in Sciborzyce Wielkie, the younger man knocked the older man to the ground and bit off a chunk of his right ear before going after the left, the report said.

The injured man was rushed to a hospital but doctors could not do much since nobody brought the missing chunk of ear.

Police arrested the younger man on assault charges, the radio said.

The report did not say what started the fight.
