CRYSTAL RIVER, Fla. – A Florida woman has been jailed without bond after biting off part of the lip of the woman who was babysitting her son.

WTVT reports an intoxicated Megan Marie Jones, 31, was arrested Saturday after she returned to her Crystal River home and began yelling at her 2-year-old son for crying.

The babysitter entered the room and told Jones to stop yelling.

The two began arguing and while holding her child, Jones attacked the 55-year-old babysitter.

Jones bit the woman's lower lip; ripping off about a quarter of an inch.

The unidentified babysitter was taken to the hospital.

Jones is being held without bond on charges of child neglect and felony battery. Her child is in the care of his grandparents.
