Edwards, Colo. (AP) An Edwards man has been arrested on charges of biting off part of his brother-in-law's ear after drinking beer and getting into an argument.
Henry T. Benites was arrested on suspicion of felony first-degree assault. The Eagle County Sheriff's department says his brother-in-law, 27-year-old Crisofor Q. Reyes, was transported to Denver for plastic surgery.
A sheriff's report says the 24-year-old benites told deputies the march 28 fight started after he had downed seven beers and then slapped Reyes' son on the hand when the boy dropped a milkshake.
Benites says Reyes pushed him twice before Benites put him in a headlock and bit his ear.
Deputies say Reyes was cited for harassment.
No phone listing could be found for either man.
