A lawyer got his nose bent out of shape during an altercation over an occupied bathroom stall — and retaliated by chomping off part of a man’s schnoz. Mark Lambert admitted during an interview with WMC-TV to biting off a portion of Greg Herbers‘ nose, according to a report on the TV station’s Web site. The bite occurred during a fracas at Memphis-area hot spot “Dish”. Herbers is now reportedly suing Lambert, claiming he needs plastic surgery and might have to wear a prosthetic nose. He also claims Lambert swallowed what he bit off. Lambert told WCM-TV that he did take a bite out of Herbers — but maintains he spit out the flesh. (Uhm… GROSS!!)
The brouhaha reportedly began when Herbers entered the restaurant’s bathroom and found all urinals and stalls in use. He says he asked two men who were in the same stall — but not using the toilet — to leave, WCM-TV reported. He claims they refused his request. Lambert, who was using a urinal and carrying on a conversation with the duo barricaded in the stall, began hurling profanity at him, Herbers says, and then shoved him and delivered the bite. Lambert told the TV station he acted in self-defense and that Herbers attacked him. A police report said Herbers’ entire left nostril was ripped off, WCM-TV reported. He is suing for $5 million.

Yuck… so many disgusting and odd things about this to mention, but of course I’m gonna’ put my two cents in on this madness! First, “tis’ the season to be jolly or very foolish” as in this case! Two men “chatting it up” in the “john”… WTF?! That’s a first for me because I always thought men were in and out of the bathroom, rarely washing their hands!!! I didn’t realize men went to the bathroom together for “girl talk”! Then, you’ve got an atty. involved in assaulting someone, plus he did a Mike Tyson and bit the guy’s nose off (boogers and all)?! (Throws up a little)– again, WTF?!!
The 5 million dollar lawsuit disturbs me on a whole other level though. I’ve endured sexual harassment on one job, racial discrimination on another, and I still couldn’t sue the employers, but this guy can sue over a nose bite for 5 million? Something is dreadful wrong with our judicial system that’s for sure! But… having a bite to your person has to suck BIG TIME…
