BOCA RATON, FL ( — 2014 is off to a tough start for two Boca Raton men: Alberto J. Felipe and John Ott. Felipe is charged with biting off part of Ott’s ear in a dispute.

Felipe, of Nottingham Road, was charged with felony battery. In Palm Beach County, as it turns out, biting off someone’s ear is a bondable offense. Felipe posted $3,000 bond and is now free.

We’re keeping our ears open for updates on Ott’s condition as well as Felipe’s hearing date.
