A MAN has had the tops of both his ears bitten off by a crazed driver in a bizarre incident in South Australia.
Police said the 35-year-old male driver lost control of his car while performing burnouts at Murray Bridge, East of Adelaide around eight o’clock on Thursday night and crashed through a large wire fence.
A 41-year-old man who lives nearby raced to the driver’s aid to see if he was okay but, instead of being thanked for his concern, was met with a flurry of punches to the head.

The man behind the wheel of the car then allegedly chewed off the top half of the Good Samaritan’s ears.
When police arrived, the driver was armed with a rock and allegedly kicked an officer.
Police allege the man was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
They were forced to deploy their capsicum spray to subdue and detain the man.
The 35-year-old has been charged with numerous offences including assault causing serious harm, aggravated assault police, resist arrest and DUI.
He is expected to front Murray Bridge Magistrates Court later today.
The 41-year-old man was rushed to the Royal Adelaide Hospital for emergency plastic surgery, police said.
