Authorities say a Salisbury man bit part of another man’s ear off during a fight in his front yard.
Christopher Reid, 31, of 283 Wakefield Drive, is charged with felony maiming without malice, a Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report said.
According to the report, Reid bit Daniel Flowers, 33, of 2318 Fisher Road, Rockwell, during a fight Thursday because Flowers would not let go of him.
Deputies were called to the fight at Reid’s home around 6 p.m. Reid told deputies Flowers had been yelling at him and his wife earlier in the day.
Reid told deputies that Flowers when he told the man to be quiet.
One of Reid’s children later came inside and told him Flowers was harassing them and throwing ice at them, the report said. Reid again asked Flowers to leave, and he did.
But Flowers came back, and the fight began, the report said.
Flowers was taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center and treated for the injury to his ear.
Flowers was charged on a criminal summons for two counts of simple assault and second-degree trespassing.
Reid was charged with felony maiming without malice and failure to appear on a Davidson County warrant. He received $1,500 secured bond.
Reid and his 56-year-old father Tony Reid were also charged with resist, obstruct or delay of a law enforcement officer. Tony Reid received $500 secured bond.
The report said when deputies came to the home they saw Christopher Reid run inside but could not find him, and Tony Reid denied his son was there.
Tony Reid followed deputies around the home very closely, the report said, and would not cooperate when deputies asked him to sit down.
When the deputies told Tony Reid that he could be charged if he didn’t cooperate, he told the deputies to take him to jail. He was handcuffed and placed in the patrol car, and deputies then questioned Christopher Reid and Flowers.
