Teen facing multiple charges in Salem for biting off officer’s ear

Police recently filed multiple charges against a teen in Salem, Massachusetts after she injured an officer who was trying to place her inside a patrol vehicle, an article of Salem Patch reported on August 8.

According to reports, the charges filed against 19-year-old Emma Wiley included battery, assault, mayhem, resisting arrest, and assault and battery causing a physical injury. On August 7, Wiley bit off a portion of an officer’s ear while the officer tried to place Wiley in a cop car. The officer, identified as Jessica Rondinelli, had her ear severely damaged during the incident. Wiley, who is expected to appear in court on August 8, pleaded not guilty in connection to the charges filed against her.
