A United Airlines flight headed to Miami from Newark, New Jersey, made an unexpected stop in Charleston, South Carolina, after a man on board bit another passenger, according to a report from the Charleston County Aviation Authority Police Department.

Police responded to gate A-2 at the airport when the plane landed early after a “report of someone’s ear being bit off” according to the report, provided by spokesperson Spencer Pryor. 

United confirmed the flight landed early due to the disturbance and referred additional question to local police.

“On Wednesday, United flight 728 from Newark to Miami diverted to Charleston, South Carolina due to a disruptive passenger on board,” United said in a statement provided by Robert Einhorn, airline spokesperson. “Law enforcement officials met the aircraft upon landing.”
