Woman Bites off Husband's Ear in Beer Fight
ST. CLOUD, Fla. – A woman was arrested after biting her husband's ear off during an argument over beer, according to a criminal complaint filed in the Stearns County District Court. Jamie Elrod (above), 37, of St. Cloud, is facing a first-degree assault charge.
According to the complaint, officers were called Friday evening to a domestic assault on 7th Avenue South. Upon arrival, officers met with Elrod and her husband. Officers noted the husband was missing part of his right ear. During a search of the apartment, police found blood as well as a part of the victim's ear on the floor. The victim told officers he and Elrod had gotten into an argument over a beer in which Elrod was yelling at him over a beer and then followed him into the bedroom where she reportedly "went off at him."
The complaint said it appeared Elrod had been drinking and, when asked what happened to the victim's ear, she said she did not know. However, a review of the jail's phone calls made by Elrod revealed she admitted to biting off the victim's ear. Elrod is currently being held at the Stearns County Jail on $30,000 bond.
