CLOVIS, NM (KCBD) - A Clovis man is going to spend the next 10-years in prison for biting off a man's nose.

In April of last year, Joey Maes was asked to leave a party in Clovis. Maes soon returned, kicked in the front door of the house, ran into the kitchen, grabbed a knife and threatened everyone there. Someone called 911, while a man was trying to get the knife from Maes. When Clovis Police got there, they were told Maes had bitten off the end of the man's nose. Officers found the nose lying on a cutting board in the house.

Maes will serve ten years in the New Mexico State Penitentiary for aggravated battery.
