A California man was arrested in Davis County, Utah after he allegedly bit a large chunk of another man's ear off following an argument about conspiracy theories. 43-year-old Bryan David Boyack is charged with one count of mayhem, three counts of domestic violence in the presence of a child, one count of criminal mischief, and one count of intoxication. Investigators said Boyack was in a hot tub with the victim who mentioned that he worked for a big banking business. Boyack took issue with that, and began an “extremely heated” argument about big corporations and conspiracy theories. The victim then locked Boyack out of his home and Boyack began hitting the front of the house with patio furniture. The victim went outside to tell Boyack to stop damaging the home, and that's when he was attacked. Boyack allegedly held the victim to the ground and bit off a large chunk of his ear. Boyack then got into his truck and drove off. The victim detailed his attack to detectives at a hospital. Boyack was taken into custody after turning himself in to police. (

Multiple police units arrived at a property on Wednesday morning after a neighbor heard a child’s piercing screams and a man repeatedly yelling, “Why don’t you die?” Fearing the worst, officers responded to the incident only to find a man had simply been trying to kill a spider. Wanneroo Police posted the original incident report on Twitter with the caption: “Never a dull moment for police!” Upon arrival, an embarrassed man told the police he was terrified of spiders and had been trying to kill one that had found its way into the house. The police report concluded, “No injuries sighted, except to spider, no further police involvement required.” Wanneroo Police have since deleted the post, as it contained police communications, but confirmed to the Guardian that the bizarre incident had occurred.
