Man Bites Cousin's Nose Off

A Spring Valley man was rushed to the hospital Tuesday night after his cousin bit the tip of his nose off.

The altercation started at a family gathering in a home in the 9000 block of Lamar St. around 11 p.m. Tuesday, a sheriff's department statement said.

The two cousins had been drinking and arguing all day, and eventually starting a physical fight. During the fight, one of them bit the tip of the other's nose off.

The victim was taken to the hospital, along with the piece of his nose which was located shortly after the fight.

The suspect was arrested and booked into jail, the department stated.
