Hmm, I wasn't sure where to put this one... it is a bizarre crime. But in the article the wife says "authorities have exaggerated the extent of her injuries." Her defense of him is nearly as criminal as what he did to her! Wife loses lip after calling man short Akano Nzerem, 54, of South San Francisco, is charged with felony counts of domestic violence, mayhem, false imprisonment, battery and making criminal threats. Nzerem told police he was provoked by his wife attacking him first and calling him a short man, according to the district attorney's office. Police said Nzerem shoved aside his 16-year-old daughter when she tried to intervene in the argument. He then allegedly grabbed his wife in a bear hug and bit off her lip. Police recovered the lip from the floor but doctors were unable to reattach it. Nzerem's wife said authorities have exaggerated the extent of her injuries.
