Man pleads not guilty to charges for biting another man's nose

LEWISTON, Maine, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- A 33-year-old man is accused of nearly biting the nose off another man at a bar in Lewiston, Maine, police said.

Todd Lyons pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of aggravated assault in the 2011 incident that occurred on the dance floor of Pub 33, the Lewiston-Auburn (Maine) Sun Journal reported.

Lyons, formerly of Mechanic Falls, Maine, was arrested recently on a warrant by police in Pascagoula, Miss., where he was found working at a local carnival.

Police allege Lyons walked up to Ryan Zinninger of Greene, Maine, in November 2011 while Zinninger was on the dance floor. Lyons allegedly walked up to Zinninger, "leaned into him and bit him on the face," police said.

Zinninger was rushed to a hospital, where doctors were able to reattach his nose with 12 stitches, police said.

Witnesses told police the two had been arguing, but a bartender working that night said it appeared to have been a random act, the newspaper said.

Lyons is being held in lieu of $10,000 cash bail.
