An Aiken man had to have his earlobe reattached Saturday night after it was bitten off by his son-in-law in Augusta, according to police.

Deputies were called to a home in the 2300 block of Boykin Road about 10 p.m. Saturday. They found Frederick Harrison, 52, and Jonathan Collins, 29, in the middle of a fight, with a portion of Harrison’s ear lying on his chest.

Richmond County sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Carrier said the incident began when Harrison’s 30-year-old daughter and her husband, Collins, began arguing because the woman made a sandwich for another man at a party.

Police said a child at the home notified Harrison, who then went to the home.

According to an incident report, Harrison told deputies he was arguing with Collins when Collins punched him in the face and then bit off a portion of his ear.

Harrison was taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital, where his earlobe was reattached.

Collins was booked into the Richmond County jail on charges of aggravated battery.

Any relation to Mike Tyson?

There so many jokes and ways to do a play on words with this, the sandwich fixing and the girlfriend.

The AC should be glad that they have Sean M. monitoring the Comments.

What are you? An animal?

If you are going to go around biting peoples ears off, you need to be locked up. Like a dangerous animal. You can't run around biting peoples limbs off. That is dangerous. You need to be put away.

Maybe

Maybe if his wife would have made him a sandwich he would'nt still be hungry. I guess it all goes back to saying " The way to a mans heart is through his stomach." That must have been a d..n good sandwich to get arrested over. LOL
