Inmate loses portion of an ear in jail fight

Charles Wolken, 42

A fight between two inmates leaves one without much of his ear.

In the probable cause statement, authorities say Charles Wolken, 42, of Glenwood bit off a portion of another inmates' ear.

Authorities say the fight happened Wednesday in the day room of the Schuyler County Jail in Lancaster.

The injured inmate was taken to a hospital, where the emergency room doctor was unable to re-attach the ear.

Wolken is charged with first degree assault, a Class A Felony, and remains at the jail with a new bond set at $50,000 cash only.
