    A portion of southbound I-95 was closed Thursday morning so police could look for a man's ear, The Free Lance-Star reports.

    Officers were called to the scene just after 8 a.m. after a number of drivers reported seeing a man running in and out of traffic near mile marker 121 in Spotsylvania County.

    The victim told police he and a friend got into a fight while driving through the county, and the friend bit the victim's ear off and threw it out the window.

    A police spokesman told The Free Lance-Star the victim's entire ear was missing.

    Police blocked a lane of the interstate and eventually found the ear on the shoulder of the road. The victim and his ear were taken to Mary Washington Hospital, where surgeons were attempting to re-attach it. There's no word on whether the attempt was successful.

    The victim's friend, 31-year-old Floyd Warren of the Bronx, New York, was charged with malicious wounding.
