Raleigh man accused of biting off another man's finger

Posted October 9, 2012

— A Raleigh man was arrested early Tuesday morning after he allegedly bit off the finger of another man.

George Benjamin Blake, 37, of 725 Locust Lane, was arrested on one count of assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

An arrest warrant alleges that Blake hit another man, identified as Thomas Blake, in the face and body and then bit off his finger.

It's unclear why the assault happened or how the two men know each other. The warrant indicates that both of them live at the same home.

George Blake was jailed under a $25,000 bond.

    What was the other man doing to this man to have a finger bitten off? It takes to tangle.

    they don't know how the two men know each other? Um, same last name and same address... um, let's commission a study from one of our fine local universities to help solve that mystery.

    This made the news how and why for that matter. There is too much going on in the world than two childish grown men fighting.

    I read that it's quite dificult for labs to determine if someone has used bath salts because the chemical makeups are so varied and they change all the time. The lab has specific tests designed to detect each drug they test for like marijuana, cocaine or meth. These "designer" drugs are harder to test for because as soon as the lab figures out one chemical composition and how to test for that, those producing the drugs change it slightly and the test won't work anymore.

    The autopsy report about the guy in Florida that ate the poor guys face off came back and guess what? No bath salts. Seriously, no bath salts as originally reported. The only thing in the guys system was marijuana. Look it up.
