      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Bobbie Smith was held in the Jackson County Jail on a $5,000 bond after her arraignment Tuesday on charges including mayhem and domestic violence.

Napoleon Township Police Chief Michael Curry said the 27-year-old woman bit off "a significant portion" of Sandra Smith's nose during a fight Sunday. Police recovered the detached piece.

Assistant Prosecutor Mark Blumer told the Jackson Citizen Patriot that photographs indicated one-third of Sandra Smith's nose was bitten off. The 28-year-old woman was to meet with a plastic surgeon at University of Michigan Hospital.

Mayhem, defined in part under a 1931 Michigan law as mutilating another person's nose, is a 10-year felony.

Jail records didn't indicate if Bobbie Smith had a lawyer.
