A New York man bit off his younger brother’s ear when a playful wrestling match at the end of a Super Bowl party turned hostile.
Sean Fallon-Nebbia, 27, of Rochester bit off part of his 26-year-old brother’s ear, police said.
Witnesses told authorities Fallon-Nebbia was saying “I love you, brother” at the start of the altercation, just before midnight Sunday.
An emergency room doctor at Strong Memorial Hospital said the bite was so severe that the 26-year-old will be “permanently disfigured,” the police report states.
Partygoers said Fallon-Nebbia and his brother drank a bottle and a half of Southern Comfort and some Jack Daniel’s during the game.
Fallon-Nebbia was charged with felony assault and is being held on $15,000 bond.
City Court Judge Melchor Casto issued a protection order for his injured brother.
