Hall & Oates have been involved in an altercation in Norwalk, Ohio – but not that Hall & Oates.

Roger Oates [pictured above] has been jailed after allegedly biting his neighbour Scott Hall's eyebrow off, suggesting he is, indeed, a 'Maneater' of sorts.

Oates has since been charged with felony assault, resisting arrest and obstructing official business in connection with the incident, reports Norwalkreflector.com.

According to Erie County Sheriff's report, the altercation started on Sunday night (December 9) when Hall was in the garage of his home watching football. According to Hall, Oates pulled into his driveway with accomplice Ronald Mantz and became angry because Hall would not testify in court on his behalf over an underage consumption complaint.

Oates then allegedly attacked Hall before leaving the scene with Mantz. The pair, who were said to be intoxicated, were later arrested at Oates' home. According to the report Oates resisted arrest and was tasered by officers at the scene. Mantz also resisted arrest but was "was escorted to the ground, where he was finally handcuffed".

Oates remains in custody while Mantz was released Tuesday after being bailed. The musicians Hall & Oates [pictured], who are in no way connected with this incident, go by the names of Daryl Hall and John Oates. They are best known for their '80s hits 'Maneater' and 'I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)'.
