    Man accused of biting off friend's nose

    Associated Press • July 31, 2008

    IOWA CITY, Iowa — An alcohol-fueled argument between two friends degenerated into a fight in which one man bit off the other man's nose, police said.

    Donroy Merrival was charged Tuesday with willful injury stemming from the July 24 fight. He also faced charges in an unrelated incident a couple of days later.

    Authorities said he was drinking with another man when they started arguing and the other man hit him with a shovel. They say Merrival responded by biting off the man's nose and part of his lip.

    “He's a heavy drinker and sometimes when he drinks he changes and gets real nasty,” the injured man, Matthew Osing, told KCRG-TV.

    At least he didn't cut off a stranger's head on a bus.

    Excellent point.

    I wanna know where they were fighting if this guy just randomly picked up a shovel.

    I guess the best part about this is we finally know where the bad guy from Dirty Harry ended up.

    Yeah, no kidding it was unrelated because the guy didn't have a nose to bit off anymore. Duh!

    I am utterly shocked this incident involved alcohol.

    Smoking weed instead, here's how it would go down:
    "You're wrong!"
    "No, you're wrong!"

    "Um, hey, you want some Cheetos?"
