Homeless Texas man gets 15 years in prison for biting off another man's nose

A Texas jury sentenced a homeless man to 15 years in prison for biting off another man's nose, MyFoxDFW.com reports. 

Christopher W. Harris, 37, allegedly got into an argument with another homeless man while they were washing a car together. 

According to the Tarrant County District Attorney's office, Harris grabbed the victim in a bear hug, tearing off both nostrils and the tip of his nose. 

The man was rushed to the hospital, but surgeons were unable to reattach the nose, MyFoxDFW reports. 

Harris has been sentenced for biting off body parts before -- in 2001, he spent nine months in jail for biting a jailer's finger.   Five years later, he was sentenced to five years for biting off part of a man's finger, chewing it and swallowing it.
