A man accused in a strange case of battery in Livingston Parish, is now behind bars.
Deputies say Miguel Garcia bit off the upper half of his roommate's let ear over the weekend.
They say the arrest stems from an incident that happened a few nights earlier at their home in Denham Springs.
Deputies say 14 men of Hispanic decent lived in the house.
When deputies arrived at the home two of the men, Leandro Macdonado and Mario Duran, took off and were caught soon after.
The men said they ran because they were in the country illegally.
