A man was arrested on a charge of wounding with intent after biting off the ear of his friend for liking the Facebook photo of his girlfriend, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.

Now, 29-year-old Darren Smyth of Aigburth, has been sentenced to serve 4 years in jail after pleading guilty to wounding with intent.

According to the police investigation, Smyth bit off the ear of Christian Adams because he liked a photo of his girlfriend on Facebook.

Smyth was just released from prison when he went out for a night of drinking and taking cocaine.

Both Smyth and Adams, along with the girlfriend of Smyth, were celebrating at The Royal Oak Hotel, when the incident occurred.

When his friend came up to hug him, Smyth sank his teeth into the left ear of Adams and tore off part of it. The ear was never found.

Adams was disfigured and needed ongoing medical treatment for two years. Smyth told the court that he was sorry and apologized to Adams and his family members.
