O.C. man arrested after allegedly biting off, chewing eyebrow

Luis Miguel Aguilar A 29-year-old Buena Park man has been arrested for allegedly biting off a man's eyebrow during a fight, chewing it and spitting it out,  police said Wednesday.

"It's a pretty good chunk ... about the size of an egg," Cpl. Andy Luong of the Buena Park Police Department told The Times.

Luis Miguel Aguilar was arrested by detectives Monday. He was being held in the Buena Park Jail and is expected to be arraigned Thursday on one count of felony mayhem at the North Justice Center in Fullerton, Luong said.

The victim, a 41-year-old Placentia man, will require reconstructive surgery as a result of the fight that broke out Friday night at a party in the 7500 block of El Cerro Drive, Luong said. The victim's name was not released.

Luong said the two men did not know each other.
