Woman arraigned after biting off part of man's ear
A Mount Clemens woman was charged with intent to maim and assault after she bit off part of a man's ear at a Chinese restaurant, authorities said.
Jade Anderson, 24, was arraigned Friday on two assault charges, including one which is a 10-year felony, in the 41B District Court of Clinton Township.
Anderson's bond was set at $20,000.
The incident occurred at 9:40 p.m. Thursday, when Macomb County Sheriff deputies responded to a China 1 Restaurant in Mt. Clemens on reports of assault.
Deputies said Anderson entered the restaurant to complain to the owners about an order she had received. Due to a language barrier, the son of the husband and wife pair served as the translator. That's when an argument broke out.
Deputies said Anderson pushed the son, threw the food onto the floor and began assaulting the woman. Her husband stepped in to protect her and Anderson then assaulted him. Deputies said as Anderson was being pushed out of the store, she bit off part of the man's ear.
The man was transported to the hospital, and his wife was treated at the scene for her injuries. After her arrest, deputies learned that Anderson had left a small child at her home unsupervised. Deputies responded to her home and turned the child over to a responsible adult, they said. The child was not harmed.
Anderson is being held at the Macomb County Jail and is expected to return to court July 11 at 1:30 p.m.
