PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – FIFA has officially charged Uruguay’s Luis Suarez with biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during a World Cup match yesterday.

This means Uruguay’s best offensive player could be suspended. He’s apparently done it two others times.

FIFA officially announced an investigation early Wednesday.

Chiellini was allegedly bitten on his left shoulder and afterwards, Suarez grabbed his teeth and fell to the ground.
