ST. CLOUD, Minnesota – Jamie Elrod was arrested after police say she bit off her husband’s ear during an argument about a beer, according to the St. Cloud Times.

Officials say they were called to the scene last Friday for a domestic dispute. Both Elrod and her husband were there when police arrived.

In the report, it was noted that the husband was missing part of his right ear and it was later located inside their apartment.

The victim told police that he and Elrod argued about a beer, she then followed him into their room and  “went off at him.”

Elrod initially told police she didn’t know anything about the ear, but later revealed she did during recorded jail phone calls.

According to the Stearns County District Court, Elrod is facing a first-degree assault charge.
