A 32-year-old DeLand woman was arrested on suspicion of biting her boyfriend's ear off.
Sarah Wulchak was arrested Tuesday on aggravated battery charges.
According to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office, Wulchak attacked the 53-year-old man from behind while he was sitting on his bed eating some spaghetti.
The man told deputies that he felt a pain in his ear and pulled away from Wulchak. He said he then noticed that the top half of his ear was missing, according to deputies.
Wulchack left the home and was found at a nearby motel, deputies said. She claimed she was defending herself and denied biting the man's ear, deputies said.
The Sheriff's Office, however, said she was not injured and scratches on the man showed that he was attacked from behind.
Wulchak was arrested and booked into the Volusia County Jail.
