A San Angelo woman has been charged with aggravated assault with a weapon -- her teeth -- after allegedly biting off part of her boyfriend's lip in a domestic dispute. Aubrey Joyce Garcia, 27, is accused of biting Antonio Zaragoza, 33, during a fight Sunday night. She was arrested after police were called to a home where the two were fighting, police said.

Garcia remained in the Tom Green County Jail on Tuesday. Her bail is $30,000. Bradley Miles, her attorney, could not be reached for comment.

Zaragoza was treated at a hospital and released.

Teeth are considered a weapon because they allegedly were used to disfigure a person, officials said.

If convicted, Garcia faces up to 99 years in prison.
