It's a holy war!
An 80-year-old Catholic priest bit off another priest's ear and socked him in the face over a parking spot in Australia, according to Perth Now.
Father Thomas Henry Byrne appeared in court Friday after he allegedly started the violent brawl when 81-year-old Father Thomas Joseph Cameron Smith wouldn't give up his parking space. After a brief scuffle, Byrne reportedly told Smith to pick up an item on the ground.
The item was Smith's ear, according to the Daily Mail, though it took him a while to figure out what it was.
