In 1997, Tyson was disqualified from his rematch with Evander Holyfield after he bit the champ on both ears.

When you can't beat 'em, bite 'em.

An Ocala man has been arrested and charged with aggravated battery after he went Mike Tyson on his brother and chewed off part of his ear during a fight.

As you can imagine, the brothers had both had a few too many beers when they got into an argument over the family dog. Words soon turned to shoves and before long, the brothers were playing family feud.

Authorities say a deputy arrived at the home on Wednesday and found Felipe Vega, 32, standing in the front yard. Authorities say he told them to take him to jail because he had just chewed his brother out. They didn't know he meant literally.

When police found Felipe's older brother, his right ear was detached and hanging by the skin. His left eye was swollen shut
and covered in blood.

The injured brother was hospitalized.
