Shoreline watch: Man bites off part of prostitute’s ear

I’ve been trying to think of some sort of meaningful commentary for this, but I think the facts say it all:

A man bit off a piece of a prostitute’s ear in Shoreline on Sunday night because he thought she was trying to leave without providing sex, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

The quarter-sized piece of her ear was recovered from a garbage can in the man’s kitchen, police said, but physicians at Harborview Medical Center were unsure whether it could be reattached.

According to deputies, the man found the woman through an ad on Craigslist and invited her to his Shoreline home. They agreed upon a price and she was paid, said sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. John Urquhart.

Before the deal was consummated, the 44-year-old woman moved toward the door to get better reception on her cellphone, but the man thought she was trying to leave, police said.

“The fight was on,” Urquhart said.

Urquhart said the woman fled and made her way to Northwest Hospital, where Shoreline police were called. After investigation, police said, the 54-year-old man was arrested and the piece of ear retrieved [Times].

First of all, biting is bad. People, do not bite your hookers unless they ask you to. But then he threw her ear in the trash? Why did he bite her in the ear in the first place? I’m just…baffled by the whole thing.

    Ouch, John, that hurts.

    Josh, he was on Craigslist looking for a prostitute, which he then brought to Shoreline.
