Man Gets 21 Months in Prison for Biting Policeman in Butt

A resident of the central Russian republic of Udmurtia was sentenced to one year and nine months in prison for biting a policeman in the butt after being arrested, the local branch of the Investigative Committee reported Thursday.

The 34-year-old man was responsible for a drunken brawl this year at one of the residential buildings in his village. Police officers who came to the scene arrested him and put him into a car, but on the way to the police station he started a fight and bit one of the officers in the butt, the report said.

The attacker was later charged with inciting violence against a law enforcement officer and sentenced to time in prison. He had earlier been convicted for drug possession, the report said.
