BERLIN, Ohio, Dec. 13 (UPI) -- Police in Ohio said an incident resembled the 1982 hit song "Maneater" when a man named Oates allegedly bit his neighbor, a man named Hall.

Erie County sheriff's deputies said they responded Sunday to the Berlin home of Scott Hall, who told them he had been bitten just above his right eye by his neighbor, Roger Oates, 48, ABC News reported Thursday.

"It was apparent [Hall] had been assaulted as he had a significant injury above his left eye," the incident report reads. "There was a significant cut to his left eyebrow region in the shape of a bite."

Deputies said Oates allegedly attacked Hall for refusing to testify on his behalf in a case involving a charge of supplying alcohol to minors.

The arrest report said Oates was still at the home when deputies arrived and they had to use a Taser to subdue him.

Oates was charged with felony assault and resisting arrest.

The incident evoked 1982 rock hit "Maneater" by Daryl Hall and John Oates.
