Must be the heat. The details are slim right now, but 19 Action News is reporting on a backyard brawl that turned Tysonesque. According to the report, Cleveland resident Lachelle Johnson rolled up her sleeves and went to work on a neighbor. Before the fisticuffs were done, the unnamed combatant had chomped off a part of Johnson’s ear.
While Lachelle was seeking treatment at MetroHealth Medical Center, officers on scene were able to locate her severed ear and rush it back to the hospital.
Doctors were able to reattach the ear and Lachelle is grateful.
"I really appreciate it. That's a blessing that he did find my ear. I mean that's not a story you hear... They were wonderful. MetroHealth was wonderful. Wonderful." says Lachelle.
As for the neighbor, a grand jury is considering charges against her.
