Paramus New Jersey police are looking into a fight at a local bar that reportedly resulted in serious injuries, including one participant losing part of her earlobe.
The violent altercation occurred just after 11:00 p.m. at Miller’s Ale House on Route 4 in Paramus, NJ. One of the women was allegedly drunk when she bit the other woman’s earlobe off.
Someone at the bar contacted Paramus police, which dispatched officers to the scene. When Paramus cops got to the bar, they found the two women in the aftermath of the fight.
The woman who lost part of her earlobe during the fight was taken via ambulance to Hackensack University Medical Center, where she underwent emergency surgery. The other woman in the bar fight was transported to Bergen Regional Medical Center.
The Paramus police chief later said that the main suspect in the violent bar fight was “heavily intoxicated” and “uncooperative with the investigation.” Additionally, it was noted that the woman who sustained the serious injuries in the fight chose not to file a complaint or talk to police about the incident.
If Paramus law enforcement does ultimately decide to criminally charge either woman, it is possible that those charges would include aggravated assault and simple assault.
