Jonesville, Michigan (The Weekly Vice) - Bobbie Smith, a 27-year-old Jonesville woman was arraigned Tuesday on charges she bit her sister's nose off during a domestic dispute.
"I love my sister - I was trying to take care of her," said Smith as she bawled in court before Judge James Justin.
According to police, Smith and her sister were in the midst of a heated argument when Smith reportedly bit off about 1/3 of her sister's nose.
Smith told police she was drunk and did it in self defense, although police could find no signs of injury to back up her claim.
Smith's sister, on the other hand, was rushed to Allegiance Health before finally being transferred to the University of Michigan Med Center. Police recovered the missing portion of her nose, but it is not yet known if the piece could be reattached.
Investigators say Smith was extremely combative during her arrest - managing to damage a security partition while in the back seat of the patrol car.
She was booked into jail on charges of assault with intent to do great bodily harm, aggravated domestic violence, resisting arrest, malicious destruction of property and mayhem.
