A 4o-year-old father was arrested by police last Friday on a felony maiming charge after he allegedly bit the ear off a man he got in an argument with at the Lanes at Coffee Creek bowling alley in Owasso, Okla. Doctors were apparently unable to reattach the ear.

The fight allegedly broke out Aug. 31 at the bowling alley, where Desiree Lyons and her husband Chris were bowling with their daughter. Desiree apparently spilled a drink on their shared table with a group of seven girls. Upset over the spilled drink, and reportedly after shouting at the Lyons family, the girls left the bowling alley vowing to return "with their boyfriends."

According to court documents obtained by the Smoking Gun, they returned with Thomas Foster, apparently the father of one of the girls. A shoving match turned into a fistfight, and that's when Foster allegedly bit the ear off of Chris Lyons. Police tried to arrest Foster after the brawl, but apparently "were unable to locate him." They finally arrested him on an outstanding warrant, months later, when police pulled him over last Friday for speeding.

Foster is a convicted felon who previously served time for shooting with intent to kill and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon; he was released from jail after posting bail Saturday. Lyons will reportedly have to undergo skin grafting and plastic surgery to repair the damage to his ear.
