Callaway, FL – A Florida woman had part of her ear bitten off while brawling with another woman over stolen vape pens at a house party earlier this month.
The incident occurred at a home on Olokee Street on July 4, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.
According to deputies, a group of unsupervised minors threw a house party that resulted in a fight between a group of men shortly after midnight.
Among those in attendance at the gathering was 23-year-old Macy Regan, who lived next door to the home where the party was being held.
At some point after the fight broke out, Regan tried to leave the party to go home, which happened to be next door, according to deputies.
But as she was leaving, she was confronted by 18-year-old Dixie Stiles for allegedly stealing vape pens and alcohol, deputies said.
Investigators said Regan grabbed a 9mm handgun out of her waistband during the encounter.
Stiles allegedly pushed the gun away and she and Regan began fighting.
Deputies said Regan chomped down on Stiles’ ear at some point during the violent brawl, ripping off the top portion of her ear, according to investigators.
The BCSO responded to the scene after receiving a call about an assault and battery.
They found Stiles and Regan both suffering from lacerations and bruises in addition to the injury to Stiles’ ear.
Doctors were unable to reattach the portion of Stiles’ ear that was bitten off, according to investigators.
Both women were arrested.
Regan has been charged with felony battery causing bodily harm.
Stiles is facing a battery charge.
The BCSO released mugshots of the two suspects on July 27.
Stiles was shown with a white bandage on her head, while Regan was sporting two black eyes.
Both women appeared to be smirking in their photos.
