Houston Man Allegedly Bites Police Officer

I am going to begin with the assertion that if you are a man who is beating and threatening your ex-girlfriend, then your ability to make wise decisions concerning your personal behavior is already in grave doubt. When you then bite a police officer when confronted with allegations concerning your physical aggression towards a woman, you are looking at even more problems.

Last night, two Houston police officers responded to a domestic disturbance call by a woman who claimed her ex-boyfriend was assaulting her in her apartment. The man was found sitting in his truck and attempted to drive away when approached by the officers. He stopped his truck after several feet only to be confronted by a third member of Houston's finest. In a moment that will not be recorded as one of the wisest decisions in history, the alleged ex-girlfriend attacker decided to bite the officer's finger. He was quickly met with the force of two tasers and now is being treated at Ben Taub General Hospital before making his inevitable visit to a jail cell.

The man is being charged with aggravated assault against a police officer and making a terroristic threat.
