The two were on the Guangzhou subway when the pensioner decided that the young man had disrespected his elders and a fight broke out. Rather than the two engaging in a scuffle though, trading blows on way to a result that is all bark and no bite, the elderly man proved that age was no obstacle for him, and promptly bit part of the 28-year-old teacher’s ear off.

Filmed by other commuters, the clip has gone viral and been shared across various online sites, however YouTube has removed its copy of the clip for its sheer graphic nature.

The two later appeared at a police station but were released shortly thereafter.
