Texas woman arrested for biting off and swallowing part of another’s nose [video]

Yep, this happened. After going out and getting drunk, one woman who demanded more alcohol and didn’t get it, so she attacked another woman and bit off a large part of her nose– and swallowed it. Does this mean she’s a cannibal?

41-year-old Jessica Collins of Conroe, Texas, was arrested and charged with assault after police say she bit off and swallowed part of another woman’s nose.

KTRK reports: the victim, “Tatiana,” said that she and her neighbor and the neighbor’s guest came back to her home after a night out. When the neighbor’s guest, Jessica Collins, “demanded more alcohol and cigarettes,” Tatiana said she asked her to leave.

Instead, Collins attacked her, Tatiana said, and then she bit off a part of her nose.

According to Tatiana, when she told Collins to leave, she said Collins jumped on her and pulled her to the ground by her hair. She then bit off a large piece of Tatiana’s nose and swallowed it.

“I didn’t have time to react, to push her away,” said Tatiana. “I think I was trying to fight back, but I couldn’t. All I could remember was the taste of blood in my mouth.”

She says she passed out several times and didn’t realize her nose was injured until she was in the ambulance. Tatiana told KTRK that she said she called her husband, screaming,

“I don’t have a nose! I’m 28 years old and I don’t have a nose anymore!”

Tatiana said she will need plastic surgery for her injury. Collins was released from jail Monday after posting bond.

Doctors told Tatiana that she will need urgent plastic surgery, but she does not have health insurance. She must undergo surgery within two weeks or her injury will become more complicated, doctors say.

Friends of Tatiana have established a GoFundMe account to help with the cost of the surgery.
