Jail for bit­ing off man’s ear

Townsville Bulletin - - National Snapshot -

AN ex-sol­dier who bit off a piece of a man’s ear in an un­pro­voked as­sault and then boasted he had fed it to seag­ulls has been jailed for five years. A Vic­to­rian County Court jury heard Robert Rushby, 30, had been in­volved in a fight in­side a night­club in which Jamie McAlpine, 19, in­ter­vened. Both were evicted from the club but Rushby ran af­ter McAlpine and at­tacked him, bit­ing off his ear lobe and punch­ing him.
