LAS CRUCES, N.M. — A New Mexico woman is in jail on charges she bit off her boyfriend’s lower lip during an argument.

Las Cruces police were called to a motel Sunday night and found the 35-year-old man with a bloody face and a missing lower lip.

The department says officers found the man’s lip on the ground, put it on ice and transported it with the victim to the hospital. Police did not say if it was reattached.

Officers arrested 26-year-old Aurelia Lorena Reyes on one count of aggravated battery. She was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center and is being held on $10,000 bond.
