Man accused of biting off half of another man’s ear


A Toledo man remains in the Wood County jail for allegedly biting off half of another man’s ear.

Michael Davis, 35, of 1556 Emerson St. is charged in Perrysburg Municipal Court with felonious assault, domestic violence, and aggravated burglary. His bond was set Tuesday at $200,000. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.

Northwood police Sgt. Doug Hubaker said Mr. Davis broke into a home in the 400 block of Venice Drive in Northwood just after midnight Tuesday and allegedly pistol whipped his estranged wife, Michelle Davis, 30, of Toledo. Mr. Davis then reportedly went into a back bedroom where he found and assaulted Daniel Sipple, 30, of Toledo.

As the men fought, Mr. Sipple was bitten on his right ear. Officers said about half of the ear was removed, Sergeant Hubaker said. The ear was found, and Mr. Sipple was taken to a hospital.

Officers later found Mr. Davis hiding in a “cubby” at a neighbor’s home, and he was subsequently arrested. Police said they recovered the gun that was used to strike Mrs. Davis.
