Man bites off part of neighbor's nose during fight

Men were fighting over bottle of tequila

GRANT COUNTY, Ind. - A man bit off part of another man's nose after the Grant County neighbors got into an argument Sunday.

Marion police said Miguel Lopez and Miguel Florentino-Ramirez were in front of one of their homes on West 9th Street when they got into a fight over a bottle of tequila.

Police said Lopez bit Florentino-Ramirez’s cheek, so he bit back and sliced off the tip of Lopez’s nose.

Police found the piece of the nose under a tree, but doctors were not able to reattach it at the hospital.

Both men were charged with battery, but Lopez was released from jail early so he could see a plastic surgeon, officials said.
