Olivo bit off part of Alex Guerrero's ear in a dugout altercation during a recent game with the Albuquerque Isotopes. There's no word yet on what started the fight, but it obviously escalated extremely quickly.

Unfortunately, the ear-biting is the only part he successfully emulated. Here's the video, for those of you who can speak Spanish:
