Florida Man Bites Neighbor's Ear Off Over a Cigarette

Categories: WTFlorida

via Palm Beach County Jail
A Florida man decided to go all Mike Tyson on his neighbor's ear because he didn't give him a cigarette.

According to Boca police, the victim had a chunk of his ear bitten off after he turned down the man who had asked for a smoke.

A thin piece of cartilage kept the whole ear from being ripped from the man's head.

The victim, John Ott, told police he was helping a friend with something when Alberto Felipe, his neighbor on Jeffrey Street in Boca Raton, asked if he could bum a cigarette.

Ott turned Felipe down.

But Felipe is not a man who takes "No" for answer.

And by that, we mean he'll apparently try to eat anyone who says "No" to him.

"I was helping a friend out and someone decided they wanted to take a chunk out of my ear." Ott told CBS 12.

"This all started because I wouldn't give him a cigarette," added Ott.

Ott says Felipe walked up to him and gave him a bear hug. He then allegedly chomped down on Ott's ear.

Ott was taken to a nearby hospital, where his mangled ear was stitched up.

Before the biting incident, Ott claims that Felipe has been belligerent with him, often yelling at him from across the street.

Following the biting incident, Ott now says he plans on filing a restraining order against Felipe.

CBS 12 says that Felipe has had his share of run-ins with the law in the past, although none of the priors seem to be from him trying to eat or bite anyone.

Felipe has been arrested three other times in Palm Beach County on other assault and battery charges, CBS 12 reports.

And for trying to turn his neighbor's ear into an afternoon snack, Boca Police charged Felipe with battery. He posted $3,000 bond and is now free.

This entire story would make a great addition to those terrifying Tobacco Free Florida commercials.

Cigarette smoking is a serious addiction.


Maybe he just wanted to be heard (it worked).


How's that "diversity" and those wide open borders working out for you folks in Florida??


He'd walk a mile for his neighbor's ear, 'cause earlobes tasted good, like a cigarette should.


More proof that smokers and other tobacco addicts are brain damaged and mentally ill from tobacco drug addiction.




Bible Prophecy

“Evil Men (and Women) Will Wax Worse and Worse”

Deceiving . . . (Lying)

and BEING Deceived”

Jesus (Yeshua) called Satan the “father of all lies.” The Bible warns “in the last days” evil men (and women) will be prevalent. Lying and deception (which are now called “spin”) will characterize the generation (and the leaders) who will pull the world down into the dark abyss and terrors of the coming “Apocalypse” . . .

“But KNOW this,

that in the last days

perilous times will come . . .

Evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse,

deceiving (lying) and being deceived.”

(2 Timothy 3:1, 13)

The Scriptures tell us God cannot lie and He h ates all lies. God says truth is non-negotiable and is fundamental to His law. In the past, liars and perjurers were held accountable and dealt with harshly and severely. Today we see lying casually accepted in the news, in the movies, and on television. Lying is now being presented as funny and harmless. This generation is unique in its reaction to liars and perjurers. This nation even lifted up and still glorifies a recent President whose most notable characteristics were flagrantly staring into a TV camera lying and deceiving … and then later being convicted of criminal perjury. This generation mocks our rules of law. This generation mocks God’s Law. As noted, telling the truth is fundamental to God’s law. In the Bible we find when a nation and its leader(s) defiantly mock, ignore, and turn their backs on God’s law, God will turn His back on that nation and will remove His protection and blessings from that people. God help us. The future of that nation and people is always very, very grim …

A stark warning . . .

“Knowing this:

that the Law is not made for a righteous person,

but for the lawless and insubordinate,

for the ungodly and for sinners,

for the unholy and profane,

for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers,

for manslayers,

for $exually immoral (fornicators),

for homosexuals (sodomites),

for kidnappers,

for liars,

for perjurers,

and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine”

(1 Timothy 1:8-10)

“But the cowardly, unbelieving,

abominable, murderers,

$exually immoral,

sorcerers, (drugs … “pharmakeus”)


and all liars

shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone,

which is the second death .” (The darkness, aloneness, and torments of  HeII

(Revelation 21:8)

Sorry if I'm not politcally correct but I don't have to be.


Illegals and their culture, yet another violation of our rights.   The gov’t constantly violates our rights. 

They violate the 1st Amendment by caging protesters and banning books like “America Deceived II”.

They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by allowing TSA to grope you.

They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars.

Impeach Obama.

Last link of “America Deceived II” before it is completely banned:



Back in the 90s I was approached by a young kid about 20 in a black leather jacket on Hawthorne Blvd (the counterculture ghetto) in Portland, OR. He askes me for a cigarette. I declined. He cursed me. At that point I made a rule: If you're man enough to smoke, then you're man enough to buy your own cigarettes. The answer to affording cigarettes: Get a job.


From a melting pot, into a chamber pot!


A pinch of salt and pepper, slather on some BBQ sauce and ooo weee, that's some good eattins.


Diversity is our weakness


@crystalmartinezmarti  I don't know, sometimes I feel that using "wax worse and worse" and "grow worse and worse" so close together in a comment on a blog is worth fire and brimstone. Is lazy writing any better than lying? 


pot smoker is too young and dumb to understand
