VALLEJO, Calif. (AP) -- A roommate squabble has left a man with only one good eye after a dispute over a loud radio turned violent.

The Vallejo Times-Herald reports that police arrested Tyrone Shelton at San Francisco General Hospital's psychiatric ward on Thursday, his 36th birthday.

Police arrested Shelton on suspicion of felony aggravated mayhem after he allegedly removed the eyeball of his roommate, a 61-year-old man.

The two men lived at a skilled nursing facility in Vallejo when the fight began on April 19.

Vallejo police Sgt. Kevin Coelho said tempers flared after one of the two men played his radio too loud for the other.

Police said the victim suffered from severe swelling around his eyes, so it took some time for officials to notice he was missing an eye.
