A woman who came home drunk, was arrested and charged with assault after biting off her boyfriend’s ear, police in Florida said.

Jason Burleigh had his ear intact when he came home from a bar.

However, when Joanie Clark, 31 , came home drunk at 10:00 p.m., she began insulting her boyfriend. Burleigh decided to withdraw into a bathroom, but Clark followed him.

Clark claimed that her boyfriend began pushing her around, and at some point, pulled her hair, which left her mouth near his ear. Police were called to the home, which is located on Cobblestone Drive.

At first, Burleigh said that he was arguing with Clark when she bit his ear. Then, after telling police that he did not want her to be arrested, he changed his story and said that his ear was cut by a plant.

However, police recovered the boyfriend’s ear inside the home located at 12305 Quail Run Row. Burleigh was taken to Bayonet Point Regional Medical Center.

Clark was charged with domestic aggravated assault. She was released on Sunday, after posting $5,000 bond.
