SARASOTA -- A 32-year-old woman was charged with aggravated battery after biting the ear of another woman, according to the Sarasota Police Department.

Kesha Taylor was arrested at 1:40 p.m. Wednesday after a dispute over a phone with another woman turned physical.

Officers responded to a report of battery at Fred Atkins Park, 2581 Washington Court, when they found the 38-year-old victim.

While officers were still on the scene, Taylor returned and admitted to the altercation, the report stated.

Taylor said the victim, unprovoked, had hit her in the mouth and bit her nose during the dispute.

She then admitted to "losing it" and biting her in the ear.

Police charged Taylor with felony aggravated battery for intentionally or knowingly causing great bodily harm, permanent disability or permanent disfigurement when she bit the victim.
