SPRINGFIELD—

A basketball coach whose team lost a tournament game in Springfield Friday night was charged with assault after police say he bit off a piece of the winning coach's ear.

Timothy Lee Forbes, 34, of 62 Catherine St., Springfield, was the assistant coach of a team playing in a tournament of sixth graders. Police were called to the Holy Name School on Alderman Street and found a man suffering from a serious ear laceration.

The victim was the coach of the winning team and the alleged assailant an assistant coach with the losing team, police said. Neither team was affiliated with the school, police said.

"The biter," as police described him, fled before police arrived, but he turned himself in to police shortly before noon Monday. He was charged with mayhem, for biting the ear, assault and battery, and other charges. He was to be arraigned Monday afternoon.

The alleged biter attacked the winning coach after the game and was pulled off after a brief, but violent assault by bystanders, police said. The victim, 34, was rushed to Baystate Medical Center for treatment.

Okay, if I understand it, when a dog bites a man, it's not news. When a man bites a dog, it is news. When a man bites another man, it's in the sports section?
