A Las Vegas man, Alynn McFarlane, 29, has been charged after reportedly chomping off a chunk of an officer’s ear. According to the New York Post, the incident occurred on Monday close to 6:45 p.m. when officials responded to a report claiming that a man refused to exit a Regional Transportation Commission bus because he grew angry that he missed his stop, reports KLAS

A security guard called officials and informed them that McFarlane said he was going to

“shoot and kill”

both him and the bus driver. The 29-year-old man tossed

“rocks and a small trash bin”

at the private security guard who called the cops. The man also attempted to punch the bus driver, officials say. When police tried to remove the man from the bus, he kicked the dog and threw a rock at the animal. He went on to punch three cops, spit on another three, and bite an officer’s ear causing the earlobe to detach. 

Sadly, the officer’s earlobe wasn’t recovered causing the cop’s earlobe to be permanently deformed. However, the man was later taken into custody and charged with multiple charges, which included battery, mistreatment of a police animal, and mayhem, reports The Post.
