Wedding nuisance puts bite on arresting cops

Handcuffs didn’t prevent an arrested man from violently attacking a police officer on Thursday in Prey Veng.

Police said the 34-year-old had gone crazy at a wedding, throwing glasses and plates until relatives gave up and called the cops.

Once police arrived, they handcuffed the man and seated him on the back of an officer’s moto.

On the way to the station, however, the suspect bit the officer from behind, causing him to crash.

What’s more, he continued biting him once they were on the ground, only stopping when other cops pulled him off.

A compensation deal struck by the suspect’s family means he’s already out.
