The Oregon Court of Appeals has just ruled that teeth cannot be called a dangerous weapon. The ruling stems from a 2008 Marion County case where a man bit off a portion of his neighbor's ear in a drunken brawl. His first-degree assault conviction no longer stands. Tony Green in the Oregon Attorney General's Office says the Attorney General is still considering whether to appeal the ruling. The man in this case still faces a second-degree assault charge.
