Orlando Student Charged With Biting Off Classmate's Ear

by Mark5019 / April 15, 2005 7:10 AM PDT

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A high school student was arrested for biting off part of a classmate's ear during a fight that started after he was cut off while driving into the school's entrance.

Jonattan Robles

Jonattan Robles, 18, was charged Wednesday with aggravated battery, aggravated assault and possession of a weapon on school property. The ear of 17-year-old classmate David Roshak was reattached at a hospital.

The altercation began when two cars driven by friends of Roshak cut off Robles as he tried to turn into the entrance to Timber Creek High School. Roshak, who was a passenger in one of the cars, exchanged angry words with Robles.

Robles threatened Roshak and his friends with a black expandable baton after they got out of their cars, school resource officer Daniel Combs wrote in an incident report for the Orange County

I'm actually Jonattan's teacher. Wednesday was such an aweful day for everyone who knows Jonattan. I did not know David, but I have been told he has a reputation for being a bully, and will not be allowed to come back because he's been in too many fights. Jonattan, however, has the reputation of being a nice guy. Surprising, isn't it? The news made him out to be a thug, and he is not that at all.

Okay, so he is in remedial Junior English class, but he is one of about 5 who does all the work and currently has his research paper in order. I'm not saying he didn't do something stupid, but I'm inclined to believe that he was in serious trouble when he bit David's ear off, as he told the police. It was Jonattan against David and 5 of his buddies (one of the five is also my student).

Also, what the papers don't tell is how Jonattan was severely beat by David's friends as he was trying to get away, hence the head bandages he wore in his booking photo.

It just breaks my heart that he is probably going to go to Jail. Once the papers got a hold of it, I knew Jonattan didn't stand much of a chance. And he's 18. I'll never see that final draft of his all his hard work. We'll never see the final draft of Jonattan, as a high school graduate wanting to become a Martial Arts trainer (which, by the way, is why he even had the baton in his car).

I've had students do stupid thigns and go to jail before, but never a student I had such high hopes for as I do Jonattan. As the news vilifies him, I hope people will remember there are always two sides to fights.
