Sophomore Dereck Boles was kicked off the Boise State football team on February 27 for an unspecified “violation of team rules.” That violation was him reportedly biting part of a teammate’s ear off.

Boles was arrested on May 9 in Polk County, Florida on charges stemming from the February incident, and will reportedly soon be extradited to Idaho to face prosecution. Per the Idaho Statesman, Boles is facing a felony charge for mayhem from the ear-biting that occurred during a fight of some sort.

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.

Mayhem is apparently a rather serious charge in Idaho:


According to Idaho statutes, mayhem is defined as “Every person who unlawfully and maliciously deprives a human being of a member of his body, or disables, disfigures or renders it useless, or cuts out or disables the tongue, puts out an eye, slits the nose, ear or lip, is guilty of mayhem.” The maximum punishment is 14 years in state prison.

Man, even Luis Suárez would frown on this.
