Sometimes prosthetics don’t work
A Memphis attorney is being sued for biting off a portion of a man’s nose at a Midtown restaurant.
In a lawsuit filed this week by Greg Herbers, 48, local trial attorney Mark Lambert is accused of biting off part of Herbers’ nose during a fight last June at Dish in Cooper Young.
The dispute started when Herbers, a self-employed hairstylist, entered the restroom around 9 p.m. and noticed the one stall was occupied by two men “performing some activity other than going to the bathroom.”
Herbers said that when he told the men he needed to use the toilet, Lambert, who was standing at the urinal but appeared to know the men in the stall, became aggressive.
Lambert allegedly approached Herbers in a “menacing” fashion and jumped on him…the next thing he felt was an excruciating pain. He heard teeth crunch and noticed blood pouring from his left nostril. One of the other men in the stall screamed, “What the (expletive) are you doing?”
Lambert, who works for The Cochran Firm, and the two men then apparently fled the restroom and Herbers called police.
Herbers said Lambert bit off a large chunk of his left nostril. He also says he’s permanently disfigured and his sense of smell impaired.
You really have to be careful about bodily functions in a public restroom. And stuff.
