LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida man is in jail for allegedly biting off the tip of his girlfriend's finger during an argument at a party.

Authorities said Monday that Apolinar Guerro was arrested and charged with felony battery on Sunday. The 31-year-old is being held without bail in Polk County Jail because of an immigration detainer.

Authorities say Guerro's girlfriend Cesilia Tello was taken to a local hospital to have her finger reattached.

It wasn't immediately known if Guerro had an attorney.
