A man has bitten off another man's finger during a fight at a Massachusetts golf course.

Plymouth fire officials confirm a 47-year-old man was arrested at the Southers Marsh Golf Club in Plymouth Friday after he apparently got into a fight with another golfer and bit off a part of his thumb.

Officials say the victim's thumb had been bitten off to his knuckle and he was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The incident happened around sunset.

The attacker was arrested and charged with mayhem. A police dispatcher declined to comment Saturday and Chief Michael Botieri didn't immediately return a call seeking more information.

The name of the accused attacker has not been released.
