There's getting to know new people at a party, and then there's crossing the line: A Buena Park man was arrested this weekend when he allegedly bit off and chewed on a chunk of another man's eyebrow. 29-year-old Luis Miguel Aguilar reportedly got into a fight with a fellow party-goer, a 41-year-old man from Placentia. The fight escalated into physical violence, with Aguilar allegedly punching the victim and knocking him to the ground.

Then Aguilar "got on top of him, leaned over and took a big chunk out of his eyebrow," Buena Park police Cpl. Any Luong said, according to the OC Register.

Aguilar allegedly chewed on the bitten-off brow for a moment, and then spit it out.

The victim was taken to the hospital and treated for a bite officials say is about "the size of an egg" over his right eyebrow. Because of the nature of the damage to his face and the missing portion of the brow, the victim will need reconstructive surgery.

The assailant fled the party, but was arrested Monday after being interviewed by detectives on the case. Aguilar claims he acted in self defense, however Luong says he does not have injuries to support that assertion.

The motive for the fight, or the bite, has not been determined, however authorities say both men appear to have been intoxicated during the altercation.
