City police retrieve ear-biter, ear still at large

YOUNGSTOWN — A man accused of biting off another man’s ear during a March 20 fight over a hat was taken into custody over the weekend.

Christopher Moore, 19, is in the Mahoning County jail on a charge of felonious assault. He was arrested by police over the weekend during a traffic stop.

Moore is accused of fighting a man March 20 at an Ohio Avenue home because he was upset the man had his hat. During the fight the man’s ear was bitten off, police said.

The man did not know what home he was in and was never able to retrieve the part of his ear that was bitten off.

A warrant for Moore’s arrest was issued Friday, the same day he was arrested.
