STAMFORD, Conn., Feb. 12 (UPI) -- A man's ear lobe was bitten off and swallowed by his cousin during a brawl over loud music in Stamford, Conn., police said.

Emilio Mendoza, 27, was charged with first-degree assault, interfering with police, forgery and disorderly conduct. After he was released from a hospital, the injured man Ruiz Clemente-Perez, 39, was charged with third-degree assault, police records said.

Police were called to the apartment of Mendoza and Clemente-Perez early Monday morning. Clemente-Perez told police his cousin, Mendoza, began playing loud music, which started a fight.

"It was a pretty bloody scene," said police Lt. Diedrich Hohn.

Mendoza bit the left ear of Clemente-Perez and tore off the ear lobe, Holm said.

Sgt. Richard Barbagallo said Mendoza, who was intoxicated at the time, told him he swallowed the ear lobe.

Mendoza also showed the police fake identification when he was taken to police headquarters Monday, the Stamford Advocate reported.

Mendoza is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.
