DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A Des Moines man faces an assault charge after authorities say he bit off another man’s earlobe.

The Des Moines Register reports that 42-year-old George Thomas Chambers was arrested Sunday on an assault causing bodily injury charge. Police say Chambers bit off the man’s ear during an Aug. 21 fight.

He later allegedly told police, “I’m Mike Tyson,” a reference to the professional boxer who famously bit Evander Holyfield’s ear during a 1997 fight.

Authorities say Chambers‘ accuser initially didn’t want to press charges, but later changed his mind and contacted police. Police issued a warrant that led to Chambers‘ arrest on Sunday.

Online court records did not list an attorney for Chambers.
