MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A man is accused of biting off the ear of another person during a fight at a lumber and hardware store in Minot.

Fifty-two-year-old Gary Eiland is charged with aggravated assault, a felony that carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.

A probable cause affidavit says Eiland and the other man were fighting over where to place store merchandise when Eiland bit off the man’s ear.

Minot Daily News (https://bit.ly/2jgd5DX ) reports the severed ear was found, but doctors were unable to reattach it.

Eiland has a court hearing March 2. The state’s attorney’s office declined to comment on the case. It wasn’t immediately clear if Eiland has an attorney.
