Boise State Football Player Kicked Off Team, Arrested For Biting Off Part of Teammate’s Ear


How does one get so mad to the point where they decide to bite off another person’s ear? Only two people can answer that question: Mike Tyson and Dereck Boles.

Former Boise State Broncos defensive tackle Dereck Boles was reportedly kicked off the team in February for allegedly biting off part of the ear of a teammate. He was arrested earlier this month in Florida when an arrest warrant was issued.

Via IdahoStatesman:

Boles was charged by the Boise Police Department for felony mayhem after a Feb. 12 incident in which he allegedly was in a physical altercation with another male at an East End residence, biting him on the ear and tearing a portion of it off. The man who was allegedly bitten was treated at a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries. A Boise State source said he is a current player on the team.”

Athletic Director Curt Apsey released a statement:
“Our coaches hold our student-athletes to high standards as representatives of our teams, the University and the community. We educate student-athletes to make good decisions and treat all people with dignity and respect. This is part of our culture, and those who do not meet these standards will face consequences for their actions, including potentially losing the opportunity to compete for Boise State.”
Boles faces a felony mayhem charge and up to 14 years in state prison.
