Joshua Smith - Charged With Beating Wife For Over An Hour, Chomping Off Ear

Racine, Wisconsin (The Weekly Vice) - Joshua Smith, a 33-year-old Racine man was jailed Thursday after he allegedly beat his girlfriend for over an hour, and bit off part of her ear.

According to police, Smith reportedly called his wife after an evening of drinking and asked her to come pick him up from a friend's house. She declined, however, because he had been drinking all day, and they have had issues in the past when he was drunk.

She then took her children and left their residence for a few hours, hoping to give Smith a chance to calm down. Instead, she arrived back home to find Smith fighting with his stepfather.

When the stepfather left the residence, Smith allegedly turned his anger onto his wife.

Investigators say Smith attacked and beat his wife for over an hour, punching and biting her as she begged him to stop.

After she convinced Smith to let her go to sleep, she climbed through a bedroom window and ran to her neighbor's house for help. She had several bite marks on her hands, arms, and face. She also had a swollen face, a split lip and part of her ear bitten off.

Smith was booked into jail and charged with false imprisonment, substantial battery, reckless endangerment, mayhem, bail jumping, and disorderly conduct. If convicted, he could face up to 40 years in prison and $100,000 in fines.
