According to officials, a woman suffered personal injuries on September 21 when a male acquaintance who was intoxicated allegedly bit of a portion of her ear.
According to Shelby Police Ptl. M.B. Watson, 23-year-old Brian Lashion McClain was arrested on charges of maiming without malice and assault inflicting serious bodily injury.
According to Watson’s report, McClain was intoxicated at the time of the incident.
On the day of the incident, officials were dispatched to the scene on a report of a possible rape in progress. Upon arrival, they discovered a 21-year-old woman covered in blood.
According to a witness statement, McClain and the woman had begun fighting in the street over responsible parenting practices. The witness was able to momentarily separate them, but they returned to fighting and McClain grabbed the victim, pulled her close, bit off part of her ear, and spit it on the ground before fleeing the scene.
However, McClain was unable to escape Zane, a K-9 with the Sheriff’s Office. According to Watson, McClain arrived at the hospital to receive treatment for a bite he suffered from Zane.
