ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A man here is accused ofpulling a Mike Tyson, biting off part of his brother's right ear following a Super Bowl party.
Sean Fallon-Nebbia, 27, was charged with first-degree assault, a felony, after he and his brother fought at the tail end of a Super Bowl party in Fallon-Nebbia's apartment, just before midnight Sunday, according to Rochester City Court documents. He is also accused of punching his brother, Frank Fallon-Nebbia, in the face several times, rendering him unconscious when emergency responders arrived.
Sean Fallon-Nebbia pleaded not guilty Monday in City Court Monday morning and was remanded to Monroe County Jail on $15,000 cash bail or bond. Judge Melchor Casto issued an order of protection for the injured brother, who suffered severe bleeding and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Court papers allege that the brothers drank more than a bottle of whiskey together at the Super Bowl party and were roughhousing after the game when the incident occurred.
A doctor who treated the injured brother told police that the ear was permanently disfigured, court documents show. Another resident of the apartment told police that the brothers were drunk, were "play wrestling," and latched onto one another before they "turned violent and aggressive."
Sean Fallon-Nebbia is scheduled to return Friday to court.
