ST. CLOUD - A St. Cloud woman was arrested after biting her husband's ear off during an argument over beer, according to a criminal complaint.

A criminal complaint filed in the Stearns County District Court said Jamie Elrod, 37, of St. Cloud is facing a first-degree assault charge.

According to the complaint, officers were called Friday evening to a domestic assault on Seventh Avenue South. Upon arrival, officers met with Elrod and her husband.

Officers noted in the criminal complaint that the husband was missing part of his right ear. During a search of the apartment, officers found blood as well as a part of victim's ear on the floor, the complaint said.

The victim told officers that he and Elrod had gotten into an argument over a beer, according to the complaint. The victim said that Elrod was yelling at him over a beer and then followed him into the bedroom where she reportedly "went off at him."

The complaint said it appeared Elrod had been drinking and, when asked what happened to the victim's ear, she said she did not know.

A review of the jail's phone calls made by Elrod revealed that she had admitted to biting the victim's ear off, according to the complaint.

Elrod is currently being held at the Stearns County Jail on $30,000 bond.
