CLEVELAND A poll worker in Ohio accused of biting a voter's nose during an Election Day argument has been charged with assault.
This photo provided by the Cleveland Police Department shows James N. Wilson. Wilson is a poll worker suspected of trying to bite off the nose of a voter during an Election Day argument on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2011 in Cleveland. He is currently in custody and awaiting charges in the felonious assault investigation. Voter Greg Flanagan of Cleveland who had just voted, said he was bitten when he went to the aid of a campaign worker who was in an argument with an election employee over a sign posted near the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2011 at the polling station located at Gloria Dei Luther Church on Memphis Avenue by a roving judge.

Flanagan: The man whose nose was bitten.

Police say 53-year-old James N. Williams of Cleveland was charged Thursday with the misdemeanor and jailed to await a court hearing Saturday.

He's accused of head-butting and trying to bite off the nose of a voter who helped a campaign volunteer in an argument over signs posted near a Cleveland polling place Tuesday. Greg Flanagan needed hospital treatment.

Flanagan told the poll worker not to act like an ass but says that language didn't merit an attack. Williams was an Election Day rover, checking for voting problems.<snip>

2. I worked the polls last Tuesday and it is a
Lo-o-o-o-ong day. And people can act like asses.

But I don't think I've ever gotten THAT pissed.
