Attorney sued after biting off part of man's nose

A Memphis attorney has admitted to biting off part of a man's nose during a confrontation at a restaurant.
According to a lawsuit filed by Greg Herbers, (photo left) Mark Lambert (photo below right) bit off and swallowed part of his nose during a bizarre fight, in the bathroom.

Lambert is a trial attorney with the Cochran Firm.
The festivities began in the men's room when Herbers, a hairdresser in Memphis became upset because the urinal and stalls were occupied.
Herbers says two men were together inside the same stall.
(two men in the same stall?)
He says Lambert began talking with the two men, in the stall.
Herbers says he asked the men to vacate the stall because they were not using the toilet.
He said the pair refused, it was about this time Lambert began yelling obscenities and showing aggression towards Herbers.
Herbers says Lambert then pushed and grabbed him and bit off part of his nose.
According to Herbers, Lambert and the other two men fled the scene.
Herbers says he called police and was transported to an area hospital.
In the complaint, Herbers claims he suffered permanent disfigurement to his nose and face and will need plastic surgery and possibly a prosthetic nose.
The police report says Herbers entire left nostril was missing.
