By  | 

MILWAUKIE, Ore. (AP) -- Police said two roommates began fighting over a parking space on Thursday night, and the dispute ended when one man bit off the other's earlobe. Officer Kevin Krebs said it appeared that the victim came home and parked in a spot preferred by his roommate, starting the fight.

Police said a 25-year-old man was treated for the ear injury and released from the hospital. Krebs said doctors were unable to reattach his right earlobe.

The man was booked on an assault charge. Bail was set at $250,000.
