Elections board in Ohio says worker bit voter's nose after argument outside polling place

CLEVELAND — An Ohio election board says an employee bit a voter's nose during an argument over a campaign sign.

Cuyahoga County elections board director Jane Platten says the board identified the worker for Cleveland police trying to arrest him.

Voter Greg Flanagan says he was bitten Tuesday when he went to the aid of a campaign worker in an argument with the election employee over a sign posted near the polls.

The victim had a slash down the left side of his nose. He told WEWS-TV he was hoping his nose wouldn't be bitten off. He was treated at a hospital.

The election board says the employee had a clean record working eight elections since 2006 but won't be rehired.

Police spokesman Sgt. Sammy Morris says officers are investigating.
