A man was arrested after almost slicing another man's ear off on Sunday.
The incident occurred at 10:40 p.m. in the parking of Scoreboard, a restaurant located at 2408 Music Valley Drive.
Police said that the victim and his girlfriend witnessed another man and woman fighting in the parking lot.
Concerned, the victim approached the couple to see what was going on and check on the woman.
The man, identified as Douglas Osman, became angry at the victim because he felt he was butting into their business, according to police, and an altercation ensued.
Police said Osman pulled out a knife and slashed the victim, nearly cutting off his entire ear.
When questioned by police, Osman admitted that he threw the first punch at the victim.
He also told police that he most likely slashed the victim, but couldn't say for sure.
Osman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault.
His bond was set at $50,000.
