It should actually state "allegedly" since the pictures aren't showing the alleged "bite". It needed to be further evaluated prior making such accusations. Innocent til proven guilty! There has been far worse injuries I.e., knockouts, punching, bone breaking, etc... Yes he is known to have done it in the past but this time it's not clearly proven by the pics.
