That bites! CNN is being sued for more than $1 million by an EMT who claims one of the network's correspondents bit her while drunk and seeking medical assistance, TMZ reports.

 

According to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, EMT Tracy Lamar claims that Arwa Damon, a Beirut-based Senior International Correspondent, was in the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad last month when she became "seriously intoxicated" and "unruly and violent."

After authorities arrived, Lamar was reportedly trying to help Damon when the correspondent bit her on the left arm. TMZ reports the suit claims that while being provided medical assistance, Damon declared she was a "major reporter for CNN."
