or other member is cut off, or where sinews and limb are crippled by the wound  dealt, or fingers have become crooked, or an eye has been gouged out, or some other  thing done to a man's body whereby he is rendered less able and effective in  defending himself. But what shall be said of him who has his teeth broken? Ought  the breaking of teeth to be deemed mayhem? The answer is that there is one kind  of mayhem by which a man is rendered incapable of fighting, of which we have  spoken above,
Where there is disfigurement and not mayhem.
 and another that results in disfigurement of the body. Hence we must see whether  the teeth broken are incisors, molars or grinders, for if molars or grinders the  mayhem, since it is hidden, causes no great disfigurement of the body nor any  inability to fight. But if the incisors are broken it seems that both are consequent  thereon, for such teeth are of great assistance in winning a fight. Castration, though  it is hidden, is deemed mayhem. There are also other kinds of mayhem for which,  as is evident, the duel will not remain, as where an ear or nose is cut off, for this will  be disfigurement of the body rather than diminishment of strength.
The appeal of breach of the peace and imprisonment.
 We have spoken above of breach of the peace, wounding and mayhem. Now we  must speak of breach of the peace and imprisonment, where a free man has been  arrested and imprisoned against the peace in the court [of a lord], as1 within someone's  liberty [or in] a city, vill or borough,2 [that is], shut up in a house or castle and  detained against the peace in irons, fetters or the stocks until released by the king's  serjeant or his writ, after he has been refused bail. One may here commit a double  offence, the first by the wrongful arrest, a second by the wrongful detention.3
The words of the appeal.
 The words of the appeal are these: A. appeals B. that whereas he was in the king's  peace etc. (as above),4 the said B. came with his force in breach of the peace etc.  (as above)4 and brought him to such a court (or to such a place and there put him  in fetters or irons or the stocks) and kept him there in prison for so long a time  and dealt him wounds and did him mayhem until
