Meet Emma Wiley.

A Massachusetts college woman has been arrested after biting off the ear of rookie female officer Jessica Rondinelli, who was trying to place her into a squad car after a brawl early Sunday outside of a bar.

Officers responding to a 911 call about a fight in progress, according to a Salem Police Department report, found Ms. Wiley and another woman scrapping as a crowd of over 100 people walked around.

She had a fistful of the other woman’s hair and was trying to throw her to the ground. She was was also “screaming uncontrollably,” according to the same report.


After officers separated the tangling pair and started taking the enraged collegiate to a police cruiser, the criminal justice major from Salem State University yelled, “I’ll fucking kill you all. Don’t fucking touch me!”

As officers struggled to get her inside the car, she lunged at the face of the officer and “grabbed a hold of Officer Rondinelli’s right ear in her teeth and refused to let go.” The bitten officer then yelled, “She has my ear!”

Ms. Wiley released her bite when the 27-year-old victim in blue gouged her in the eye.

“She bit my ear off,” she told fellow officers. Her right ear was bleeding and had a “jagged chunk missing from the top of it”.


Officers found a piece of the officer’s ear in the rear area of the car used to transport the unruly perp to the Salem police station.

An officer “quickly put the piece in a plastic bag” and took it to the hospital where Rondinelli was being treated.

Unfortunately, Rondinelli was told by a doctor that, “due to the risk of infection and the nature in which her ear had been disfigured, it was unlikely that attaching the bitten-off piece was possible, and that her ear was going to be permanently marred,” according to the report.

Emma Wiley was charged with several crimes, including mayhem, aggravated assault, assault and battery on a police officer, and making threats to kill.

She pleaded not guilty to the charges and was ordered held without bail.
