Whoa, here he comes. Watch out, boy, he'll chew you up.

He's a maneater -- allegedly.

Police in Ohio say that two men, Scott Hall and Roger Oates, were involved in a bloody altercation that culminated in Oates biting Hall in the face above his left eye.

Deputies responding to a call at Hall's home reported that the man had a "significant cut to his left eyebrow region in the shape of a bite" that had blood flowing from it when they arrived, according to the Sandusky Register.

The police report, obtained by the Smoking Gun, noted that the chunk of skin had "almost completely been bit off."

According to police documents, Hall was watching football in his garage when Oates showed up with a friend, Ronald Mantz. Angry that Hall would not testify on his behalf in court, a reportedly intoxicated Oates "bull rushed" Hall and assaulted him. Hall said that Oates bit him during the assault, the report states.

Deputies wrote that Oates was later arrested at his home after a struggle in which police twice used a Taser stun gun on him. Mantz was also arrested. Oates is charged with felonious assault, resisting arrest and obstructing official business.

Oates told police that he'd made a mistake by going to Hall's residence, but insisted the other man threw the first punch.

Curiously, Oates is referred to by both "Roger" and "Robert" in police documents, but it's the unfortunate pair's last names, which coincidentally match those of "rock and soul" duo Daryl Hall and John Oates, that caused a stir in the media when news of the arrest broke.

Hall was treated at a nearby hospital, the Smoking Gun notes.
