A metro Detroit woman was arrested and arraigned Monday afternoon on a charge of aggravated assault after she allegedly bit off part of her live-in boyfriend's ear over the weekend.

31 year old Danielle Nebelung is free on $10,000 bond and will be back in court March 17.

The incident happened during an altercation between Nebelung and the 36 year old man at their home in Macomb Township Saturday.

The Macomb County Sheriff's office says as he turned his back to her, Nebelung jumped onto his back and bit off a portion of his left ear.

The man was treated by medical personnel and the missing portion of his ear was located. He was transported to a local hospital for further treatment.

Nebelung faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
