St. Petersburg Man Arrested for Taking a Bite Out of Crime and an Ear
St. Petersburg recently witnessed a dispute that could give even the most hardcore UFC fight a run for their money. It all started innocently enough when two men engaged in a heated debate on Central Avenue.
According to WFLA, James Anthony May, a 52-year-old resident of St. Pete, who, instead of settling the disagreement decided to channel his inner Mike Tyson. The police report said May allegedly sank his teeth into the victim’s right ear, leaving a mark of “permanent disfigurement.”
Now, let’s not just gloss over the gruesome details. The victim’s ear didn’t just suffer a nibble… It experienced a full-on mauling! Gross stuff! Imagine a partially detached ear, with the tip of the damaged lobe gnawed off like an unfinished appetizer. It’s safe to say that this wasn’t no ordinary Sunday night fight.

In the end, May found himself in the spotlight of a police arrest shortly after midnight. His charge? Aggravated battery. Meanwhile, the victim, presumably freaked out by the unexpected ear makeover, was rushed to Bayfront Hospital for some emergency TLC.
One can’t help but marvel at how insane it is when turning a casual disagreement into an ear-biting zombie attack. Perhaps the next time you feel the urge to sink your teeth into an argument, consider reaching for a Snickers instead. After all, you’re not you when you’re hungry, and nobody needs a side of permanent disfigurement with their late night activities.
