If you need an additional reason to give up smoking for good, well, maybe keeping your ears intact will do it for you. An employee at The Art Institute of Chicago was approached by a man asking for a cigarette. When he responded that he did not have one, the stranger...BIT OFF PART OF HIS EAR. What is wrong with people these days? Has nicotine addiction led to mental illness?!?! The entire scene was witnessed by another employee who rushed to help the injured man. The ear biter, Donnell Young, was found and subsequently charged with aggravated battery (that's it?!). The man who was attacked is expected to recover after apparently putting himself in a cab to the hospital.
