Calif. Man Jailed In Christmas Cheek-Biting Fight

STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) - An 18-year-old Stockton man is in San Joaquin County Jail on suspicion of biting off a piece of his neighbor's cheek during a drunken Christmas fight.

Jose Espinoza was being held Saturday in lieu of $112,000 bail on suspicion of felony mayhem, battery, resisting arrest, disturbing the peace by fighting and being drunk in public.

Stockton police say they had to use a stun gun on Espinoza after he refused to stop fighting with the injured neighbor.

Jail records show he faces a Monday court appearance. They do not show that he has retained an attorney.
