A Miami man is facing battery charges after biting off the tip of a security guard’s finger at a Fort Myers hospital.
Lee County deputies responded to Lee Memorial Hospital for a disturbance call on Monday, January 10th after 19-year-old Dillon Metoyer became combative with hospital staff.
Witnesses told deputies Metoyer became aggressive with two security guards, head butting one guard and biting the other guard’s left ring finger, severing its tip.
Detectives say the confrontation began when Metoyer started to act erratically while being treated by a nurse.
Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno told NBC 2 News, “this finger-biting felon bit off more than he could chew and he’s getting a taste of justice."
Metoyer is facing two battery charges and is being held in the Lee County Jail.
He is scheduled for a court hearing on February 14th at 8:30 a.m.
