Tip: skip the 'hand gesture'

Ear bitten off in road rage incident
Confrontation quickly turns to violence

NEW CASTLE, Ind. - New Castle police said a road rage incident escalated to violence Wednesday when a driver actually bit off another man's ear.

Jefferey Guffey said he was riding his bike and stopped to talk to two kids on the side of the road when Curtis "Alan" Cross sped by in his SUV.

Guffey said he told Cross to slow down. But he said Cross pulled his SUV in front of him and put it in reverse.

"(Cross) encountered a bicycle that he found frustrating to get around," said Detective Ross Frame with New Castle Police Department.

Police said both men exchanged hand gestures. Guffey said Cross then got out of his car and started yelling at him.
