We've all heard the recent story about the face-eating man who was shot and killed by a Miami police officer after ignoring warnings to stop taking bites out of a homeless man's face. There's word now that a former girlfriend of the face attacker has come forward with a more personal look at her ex-beau, one that may surprise you.

Yovanka Bryant appeared on HLN's Dr Drew show  recently talking about former boyfriend, 31-year-old Rudy Eugene, known to many people as the face eater. Bryant told Dr. Drew that Eugene was "Sweet to me" among other things.

ABC News reports Authorities are investigating whether Eugene may have been on a new and extremely dangerous street drug known as "bath salts."  Officials say Eugene ate as much as 75-percent of the 65-year-old Ronald Poppo's  face, continuing the attack even after being shot by the officer who repeatedly warned him to stop.  Police say the officers' demands were met with growls.  Poppo remains hospitalized.
