(ROCHESTER DEMOCRAT AND CHRONICLE) -- A Rochester man allegedly bit off part of his brother's right ear following a Super Bowl party.

Sean Fallon-Nebbia, 27, of Lake Avenue was charged with first-degree assault, a felony, after he and his 26-year-old brother fought at the tail end of a Super Bowl party in Fallon-Nebbia's apartment, just before midnight on Sunday, according to City Court documents. He is also accused of punching his brother Frank Fallon-Nebbia in the face several times, rendering him unconscious when emergency responders arrived.

Sean pleaded not guilty in City Court Monday morning and was remanded to the Monroe County Jail on $15,000 cash bail or bond. City Court Judge Melchor Casto issued an order of protection for the injured brother, who suffered severe bleeding and was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Court papers allege that the brothers drank more than a bottle of whiskey together at a Super Bowl party and were roughhousing after the game when the incident occurred.

A doctor who treated the injured brother told police that the ear was permanently disfigured, according to court documents. Another resident of the apartment told police that the brothers were drunk, and were "play wrestling" and latched onto one another before they "turned violent and aggressive."

Sean Fallon-Nebbia is scheduled to return to City Court Friday morning.
