Hall and Oates got into a bloody confrontation that ended with Hall getting bit in the face and Oates landing in jail, according to police.

Only, it wasn't that Hall and Oates.

Sheriff's deputies were called to the Berlin, Ohio, home of Scott Hall after he called 911 to report he had been bit above the eye by his angry neighbor, Roger Oates, 48.

"It was apparent [Hall] had been assaulted as he had a significant injury above his left eye," according to a police report. "There was a significant cut to his left eyebrow region in the shape of a bite."

The arresting officer reported that "a chunk of [Hall's] skin had almost been completely bit off."

Police allege that Oates went to Hall's home in an effort to convince him to testify on his behalf at an upcoming trial in which Oates was accused of supplying alcohol to minors. When Hall refused, Oates allegedly attacked him.

When police arrived at the scene, Oates was still there and needed to be shot with a Taser to be subdued.

Oates was charged with felony assault and resisting arrest. In his mug shot, taken soon after his arrest, there still appears to be blood covering his lips. It was unknown if he had already obtained a lawyer.

Hall was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The victim and his alleged face-biter share the names of rock duo Daryl Hall and John Oates, who sang the 1982 hit "ManEater."
