Man indicted in earlobe biting incident

A Richmond County grand jury indicted a man accused of biting off his father-in-law’s earlobe on a charge of aggravated battery.

The indictment returned Tuesday against Jonathan M. Collins contends he caused Frederick Harrison permanent disfigurement on Oct. 20.

Collins was charged with domestic violence in 2008 and 2009, but one case was dismissed and the other reduced to reckless conduct. Collins could will be arraigned on the new felony charge later this month in Richmond County Superior Court.
