SUNLAND PARK, N.M. (AP) - Police say a man had a portion of his finger bitten off during a violent road rage fight in southern New Mexico.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports 49-year-old Robert Moore of El Paso, Texas, was injured last month following a traffic altercation with 40-year-old Marco Antonio Gomez in Sunland Park, New Mexico.

Police say Gomez was angry at Moore for cutting him off and later confronted Moore on a street.

Investigators say the men and a 17-year-old eventually came to blows and Moore says someone bit off a part of his left middle finger.

Police charged Moore and Gomez with aggravated battery. The 17-year-old also was charged with battery.

It was not known if any of the suspects had attorneys.
