For the first time since he got his face chewed off, 65-year-old Ronald Poppo is shedding light as to what happened last May when Rudy Eugene attacked him on a Miami causeway. In the interview with police, Ronald said he never met Rudy before and didn't do or say anything to provoke the attack. He said Rudy was nice but got irritated and "he mashed my face into the sidewalk,” he said. “My face is all bent and mashed up. My eyes, my eyes got plucked out.
