Drunk Brother Bites Ear

FEBRUARY 3--A Super Bowl party turned bloody last night when a New York State man allegedly bit off part of his brother’s ear during a booze-fueled melee, according to investigators.

Sean Fallon-Nebbia was arrested early today and charged with felony assault in connection with the attack inside a Rochester home. Fallon-Nebbia, 27, is locked up in lieu of $15,000 bond.

Police allege that Fallon-Nebbia (seen at right) tangled with his brother Frank during a post-game scrum that escalated into a brutal assault. Fallon-Nebbia allegedly punched his younger sibling in the face several times, knocking him unconscious. He also chomped down on his brother’s right ear.

The bite was so severe that an emergency room doctor told Rochester cops that Fallon-Nebbia’s brother was “permanently disfigured” and that “the victim’s ear will not be the same again,” according to a criminal complaint. The bite caused “severe bleeding” and resulted in Frank Fallon-Nebbia’s hospitalization.

A witness told cops that the brothers shared more than a bottle of whiskey during the Super Bowl party.

In a police statement, Sean Fallon-Nebbia’s girlfriend said that the brothers “drank a bottle and a half of Southern Comfort and also Jack Daniels” during the party. The siblings were initially “hugging and wrestling” and saying “I love you, brother,” recalled Audra Babcock, who added that the men later turned “violent and aggressive.”

Babcock, who said that the brothers “puked all over each other’s faces” during the confrontation, recalled that when she saw “Sean bitting,” she said, “Oh my God Sean, you just bit Frank’s ear.”

Concluding her statement, Babcock wrote, “They were drinking. They really just love each other.” (2 pages)
