A Palm Bay man bit off his girlfriend’s thumb while driving her to work. After biting off more than he could chew, he spit her thumb out onto the floor. Apparently they were thumb wrestling and after beating him she started whooping it up, taunting him, and doing a happy dance or what is otherwise known in the NFL as, “Excessive Celebration.” He did not take too kindly to her “thumbing her nose” at him, and after biting her thumb off, he also kicked her out of the car. She was able to hitchhike a ride to the police station with her other thumb.

PALM BAY, Fla. (AP) — Police in Florida say a man bit off his girlfriend’s left thumb during a fight while he was driving her to work.
Florida Today (http://on.flatoday.com/U5N7SQ ) reports that hospital officials called police after the woman arrived for treatment Wednesday.
Palm Bay police spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez says 35-year-old Ricardo Marquis Davis confessed to biting off the thumb and spitting it onto the floorboard.
He told police they had gotten into an argument and she had pushed his head while they were driving.
Martinez says doctors were not able to reattach the woman’s thumb. She says police victim advocates are working to help her.
Davis is being held in the Brevard County Jail on aggravated battery charges.
