Woman Bites Off Man's Lip At Oktoberfest (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

When you get drunk and mouth off, be careful whom you give lip to.

A 30-year-old Alaskan woman was arrested after she bit off an Australian man's lower lip during a fight. The two were partying at a beer hall during Oktoberfest in September, according to News.co.au.

Raw video of the altercation posted to LiveLeak shows a man in lederhosen provoking the woman, who attacks him after he tries to shove something in her mouth. The woman, who appears in a yellow dress and a headband with plastic devil horns, punches the man several times, then bites him on the lower lip.

Witnesses can be heard screaming at the suspect to let go.

According to a HuffPost translation of German newspaper Abendzeitung, the woman bit off a piece of the man's lower lip and spat it on the floor. The man's lip was successfully reattached, and the woman was arrested for criminal assault.

Oktoberfest, the world's largest traditional Bavarian beer festival, draws an estimated 6 million visitors to Munich every year.

That's a lot of beer, and as German newspaper Suddeutsche.de reports, a lot of headaches for the medical personnel that are tasked with handling the anticipated cases of alcohol poisoning and other Oktoberfest-related mishaps that accompany the annual festival.
