7:00am Saturday 12th April 2014 in News
A butcher accused of biting off half a man’s ear in a nightclub has been cleared of all charges by a jury.
Gary Maguire, 38, of Clifford Road, Blackpool, was found not guilty at Oxford Crown Court of one count of wounding with intent and a lesser offence of unlawful wounding.
He was alleged to have attacked Ryan Knight in Banbury’s Sound Exchange nightclub on March 3 last year.
But he told the jury it would have been impossible for him to bite into Mr Knight’s ear because he wears dentures.
