Man Suffers Headbutt, Bite at the Polls

You think voting in Idaho sucks? Try almost losing your nose at the polls.

They say Ohio is for lovers, but apparently it's also for dudes who try to go all Danny DeVito circa Batman Returns on a brotha. If you don't know the reference, it's the scene where a flippered DeVito bites a guy's nose at a party.

Apparently, an Election Day argument turned heated when 49-year-old voter Greg Flanagan called poll worker James Williams an ass. The 53-year-old Williams asked for clarity, and when Flanagan repeated his comment, he grabbed the man's neck, headbutted him and then chomped his schnoz.

The incident landed Williams in jail, and Flanagan in a hospital for treatment.

The subject of the argument? How close a campaign sign was to the polling center. Read the Associated Press story here.
