Police: UFC watch party turns violent, fingertip bitten off

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A UFC viewing party turned violent after police say a man bit off a family member’s fingertip during a drunken brawl.

Authorities say 28-year-old Manuel Aragon was arrested Sunday following a bizarre fight at a west Albuquerque home.

According to a criminal complaint, Aragon became angry after family members started insulting him about his job. The complaint says Aragon then bit off the right index fingertip of Rey Gutierrez and hurled rocks into Gutierrez’s eye, causing “permanent disfigurement.”

Aragon’s girlfriend told police Gutierrez and two others punched and kicked Aragon while he was down on the ground.

Aragon was charged with two counts of aggravated battery and taken to the hospital before being booked into the county jail.

It was not known if Aragon had an attorney.
