Fla. Woman Bites Ear Off Victim During Fight

SARASOTA (CBSMiami) – A Sarasota woman is in jail Saturday after channeling her inner Mike Tyson during a dispute.

Authorities said Kesha Taylor, 32, is being held on $7,500 bond after allegedly biting the ear of another woman. Police said they found a 38-year-old victim suffering from a severe bite to her left ear after they responded to a report of a battery.

The victim told police she and Taylor were arguing over a phone when the dispute turned physical and ended with Taylor taking a bite into crime.

Police said Taylor faces a charge of aggravated battery for intentionally or knowingly causing great bodily harm, permanent disability, or permanent disfigurement.
