The victim says she and Abbott were leaving when Batterton attacked her with a baseball bat and bit off part of her ear. Police say when they arrived they found Abbott with the bat smashing a pick-up truck.

During his arrest, officers say Abbott slammed his head into the squad car's trunk.

Batterton was also taken to jail.
