Domestic violence in a relationship is sadly not uncommon. But a woman biting her boyfriend’s ear off is pretty crazy, to say the least — as is the shockingly light punishment she received for doing so.
A 32-year-old makeup artist who jumped on her boyfriend’s back and bit off part of his ear during a heated argument ‘over bills’ has been sentenced to two years of anger management classes.
Danielle Nebelung was arrested last March after gnawing off a chunk of 37-year-old Anthony Caruso’s ear at their home in Macomb County, Michigan, in the early hours of the morning.
During her trial, she claimed she was acting in self-defense and did not intend to bite Caruso’s skin. But Caruso argued that he begged her three times to stop sinking her teeth into his ear ‘like a dog’.
On Friday, Nebelung was sentenced in Macomb County Circuit Court after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence in relation to the brutal attack on March 8 last year.
In exchange for the plea, the judge dismissed a felony charge of assault with intent to main and a misdemeanor charge of aggravated assault against her, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Nebelung was ordered by the judge to undergo two years’ probation, during which she must take anger management classes. She was also told she must have no contact with her now-ex boyfriend.
… Nebelung and Caruso had just returned home from Waldenburg Bar in Macomb on the night of the incident when they ‘began arguing over bills’. Police responded to a 911 call at 2.45am.
Nebelung was arrested and arraigned in Shelby Township on charges of aggravated assault after authorities found a piece of Caruso’s ear lying inside their home. Her bail was set at $10,000.
Caruso later underwent treatment in hospital to stitch the bitten-off piece of skin back onto his ear.
… However, Caruso claimed that his then-girlfriend had lashed out at him simply over the argument, punching him in the face and head, before jumping on his back and gnawing off the top of his ear.
He described Nebelung as ‘dangerous’ and said she bit off his ear ‘like a dog. He later told My Fox Detriot: ‘I begged her three times to let go (of my ear). On the third time she ripped it off like a dog.’
Caruso, who called 911, added that Nebelung had smiled at him following the attack.
Just for funsies, what do you think would happen if the genders had been reversed and a man had bitten his girlfriend’s ear off? It’s inexcusable that she is being given such a pass after exhibiting such violent behavior… and all because she is a woman. How is that fair at all?
