MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) An Ohio middle school teacher has been charged with public intoxication and simple assault after two bouncers claimed she bit them while drunk early Sunday morning.

According to a police report from the Myrtle Beach Police Department, officers were dispatched around midnight to Shamrocks Sports Bar and Grill located at 2510 N. Kings Hwy in reference to an assault. When they arrived, one of the bouncers said Mia Misae Chiarella, 27, of Columbia, OH had been pushing and shoving her way through the bar and causing a disturbance.

The victim said as he was escorting her out of the bar, Chiarella bit him on the right side of his chest.

Officers then spoke with a second victim, who said he saw Chiarella bite the bouncer and went to help him get her out of the bar. Once they were outside, Chiarella allegedly bit the second victim on his left bicep. At that time, he told the bouncer to call 911 and Chiarella fled the scene, the report said.

She was described as a white female standing 5'4" and weighing 110 pounds. She was wearing a gray shirt, blue jeans and sandals at the time of the incident. Officers were able to locate Chiarella who claimed she and her boyfriend had been in an argument and she was upset and mad.

She further told police when the victims escorted her out of the bar, she "just panicked and bit them to get them to leave her alone."

Both victims positively identified Chiarella as the woman who bit them and she was arrested and charged with public intoxication and simple assault. According to the report, Chiarella is a middle school teacher, however, it is unknown at this time which school she teaches at.

The report said both victims had to receive medical attention for minor bite marks.
