A domestic abuse suspect reportedly warned her boyfriend: ‘I’m going to Mike Tyson you’ moments before she gnawed his ear.
Angelica Roberts reportedly savaged her partner with her teeth after a row over a statue while sat in a car in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Christmas Eve.
Roberts’ alleged threat was a reference to the infamous 1997 WBA Heavyweight Championship at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, which saw Tyson disqualified after biting part of rival Evander Holyfied’s ear off.
Davis County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Liz Sollis said: ‘It appeared as this Ms. Roberts was the primary perpetrator against her partner.’
Roberts reportedly bit her boyfriend’s right ear while sat in a parking lot, with the extent of the injuries he sustained not outlined by police.
Her alleged victim later told police how he ‘bit (Roberts’) left middle finger while she choked him.’
Sollis told abc4: ‘It did appear that he had some wounds that would result in him trying to protect himself.’
Roberts was charged with domestic violence and booked into Davis County Jail.
