An Albuquerque man was arrested after he allegedly tried to bite his fiance's engagement ring off her finger this week.
According to a criminal complaint, Matthew Sandoval, 23, was arguing with his fiance because she was planning to spend the night at her mother's house. In the course of the scuffle, Sandoval bit through the ring finger of his fiance's right hand in an attempt to remove the engagement ring, although she was wearing it on her left hand. Sandoval told police he wasn't stopping his fiance from leaving, he just wanted the ring back. Nowhere in the complaint does it indicate that he asked nicely before resorting to biting.
Police later found Sandoval at his mother's house, where he was arrested and charged with aggravated battery on a household member. At last check, he was being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center on a $5,000 bond.
