Police are looking for a man who bit another man and removed his nose during a fight outside of the Hollywood Casino Gulf Coast in Bay St. Louis, Miss.
The victim had a facial injury that police described as a “disfiguring facial injury” during the culmination of a day-long argument turned fight on Monday.
The casino parking lot had a nose biting incident on Monday night.
According to the Sun Herald, a Biloxi, Miss. newspaper, the suspect was identified as Mark Curtis Wells, 51, of Biloxi.
Wells and the victim were arguing over a golf game that they had played at the casino.
If he is found guilty, Wells could be sentenced to up to seven years in prison.
There was no updated information on the victim’s condition as of Wednesday. Police had yet to make an arrest in the case as of Wednesday.
There was an assault prior to that
The man who allegedly attacked his girlfriend at the Hollywood Casino Gulf Coast after suffering multiple gambling losses was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
McAlister wanted to become a patient at an alcohol and drug addiction rehabilitation facility instead of going to prison. Dodson was skeptical that he would complete the extended program.
“I think you got off lightly today, I think you’re going to have to go to prison for 15 years,” Dodson said to McAlister. I am not going to take a chance on you.
According to authorities, two years ago, McAlister attacked and choked his girlfriend after he lost money at the casino. The newspaper reported that he was convicted of domestic violence three times in 2008.
There is a casino that gets court approval
In August, the state’s highest court cleared the way for the Long Beach casino resort to move forward.
Jim Parrish, a real estate developer from Mississippi, was seeking state approval to build a $180 million casino resort across from Long Beach Harbor. The vacant property across US Highway 90 is owned by Parrish, as well as his restaurant and lounge on the tidelands.
In August, the Mississippi Supreme Court came down on the side of Parrish. The lease and boundary agreements between the developers and the state secretary’s office have been cited by the high court.
