Ear for an ear

Posted By on Thu, Mar 8, 2012 at 5:43 PM

Mike Tyson started the worst trend in the history of the world, ever.

Joseph Occhipinti, 36, was at Dixie's Tavern in Uptown early Monday morning when, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police and WBTV, a world-champ wannabe assaulted him, biting off the top half of his ear. Occhipinti was taken to Presbyterian Hospital with minor injuries.
