(Newser) – This year's Super Bowl was watched by 111.5 million Americans who didn't bite anybody's ears off—and by Sean Fallon-Nebbia of Rochester, NY. Cops say the 27-year-old bit off part of his 26-year-old brother's ear and beat him unconscious after "play wrestling" at the end of the big game turned into a brutal fight, the Democrat and Chronicle reports. Witnesses told police that the brothers had consumed a bottle and a half of Southern Comfort along with some Jack Daniel's at a Super Bowl party.

An emergency room doctor told police that the bite was so bad that the brother will be "permanently disfigured," according to a criminal complaint obtained by the Smoking Gun. Fallon-Nebbia—who was saying "I love you, brother" at the start of the fight, according to witnesses—was charged with felony assault and is being held on $15,000 bond. The judge also issued an order of protection for the injured brother. (Read more Super Bowl stories.)
