A Colorado man is accused of allegedly biting another man's nose off during a bar fight on Sunday, local authorities said.
Cornelius Ellis was arrested and charged with assault following the 9:42 p.m. incident at the Antiques Billard Museum bar, in Colorado Springs, the Colorado Springs Police Department said in a statement.
The owner of the bar told KRDO-TV that the fight broke out after Ellis allegedly made "uncomfortable advances" toward some bartenders. But when another customer got involved, the argument turned physical, and then Ellis bit the man's nose off.
In the surveillance video obtained by KRDO, Ellis can be seen bodying another man onto the floor, before getting on top of him.
