(LONDON) -- A 39-year-old man has been arrested in South Tyneside in the U.K. for biting off the finger of another man moments before a school nativity play, reports BBC News.
None of the school children saw the fight, which broke out after a long-standing feud between two parents who ran into each other at their kids' performance.
A witness told The Sun, "The two men started to fight in front of all the mums and dads. One bit the finger off the other and spat the blood out."
The 32-year old victim was later taken to the hospital to have his digit re-attached. The school has confirmed that there was no risk to its pupils.
