Ocala, Florida (AP) --

Authorities say a north Florida man was arrested for almost chewing off part of his brother's ear when they argued while drinking.

Authorities say a deputy arrived at the home on Wednesday, September 29 and found a man in the front yard. Authorities say he told them to take him to jail. He also said his brother needed an ambulance.

Authorities say the man's brother's left eye was swollen shut
and covered in blood and the bottom part of his right ear was
detached and hanging by the skin.

The brothers told authorities they were drinking and that they
got into a physical fight over one brother's dog.

The injured brother was hospitalized and the other faces a
charge of aggravated battery.
