Scorned woman 'bites off finger of husband's mistress' in street fight

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned -- and this one in particular. The jilted wife bit off her husband’s lover’s finger during a street brawl in broad daylight.

The incident reportedly happened after a businessman’s wife bumped into his mistress while out shopping in Naples, southern Italy.

A brawl then broke out between the two women, who are said to be also related.

In the midst of the fighting, the mistress pointed her finger at her rival who in turn bit into it, severing it completely.

Although reports suggest the mistress was rushed to hospital, it is not known if her finger was successfully reattached.
