CLEVELAND (AP) - An Ohio poll worker suspected of trying to bite off the nose of a voter during an Election Day argument has surrendered to sheriff's deputies.
Cleveland police say James Williams surrendered Wednesday. Sgt. Sammy Morris says Williams has been jailed to await the filing of charges.
Williams is accused of trying to bite off the nose of a voter who helped a campaign volunteer in an argument over signs near a polling place Tuesday.
Authorities say the head-butting and nose-biting landed voter Greg Flanagan in a hospital for treatment and he was still feeling dizzy after his release.
Williams was an Election Day rover, checking for voting problems. The elections board says he had a clean record in eight elections but won't be rehired.
There's no listed home phone number for Williams. He can't be contacted in jail.
