A man from Mississippi bit off part of another man's nose when he was sent into a fit of rage over a round of golf they played together.

Authorities say 51-year-old Mark Wells allegedly sunk his teeth into the victim's nose in the parking lot of a casino and golf course on Monday night and he fled the scene in a Tesla before turning himself in to the police two days later.

Wells was arguing with the victim and other members of their group about a round of golf that was played earlier that day at Bridges Golf Course, next door to the casino, according to Bay St. Louis police.

The men argued over the round throughout the day until it escalated in the Hollywood Casino parking lot around 9:30pm and Wells, of Biloxi, Mississippi, allegedly on the man's face.

His alleged bizarre and horrific attack left the man's face disfigured, police say.

The 51-year-old Mark Wells has been charged with felony mayhem and could be to seven years in prison if convicted for his crimes.
