Indiana Woman Bites Officer During Arrest, Says She Has Hepatitis

A New Castle, Ind., woman bit a police officer in the calf while she was being arrested during a public intoxication call, police say.

Officers were dispatched to a grocery store late Friday after several witnesses saw a man stumbling around the store and falling down, Fox 59.

Police arrived to find Christopher Scott Razor, 44, having a hard time standing and walking. When he got to his vehicle, he fell against it. Police handcuffed Razor and didn’t bother giving him field sobriety tests due to his apparent high level of intoxication, court documents said.

Then when police tried to talk to the driver of the car—Angela D. Riley, 43—things got out of hand.

Riley told police she hadn’t been driving and “wasn’t doing anything.” A PBT put her blood alcohol concentration at 0.16, court documents said. An officer patted down Riley, who then turned “in an aggressive manner” before being placed against the car and put in handcuffs.

While restrained, Riley tried to push herself into the officer and then “began thrashing and attempting to break away.” One officer put her in a headlock and began escorting her toward a patrol car. She kept resisting, court documents said, and lay down on the ground.

Police tried to pull her to her feet. Riley then rolled and bit the officer in the right calf. She eventually became compliant and told police she has tested positive for hepatitis, a communicable disease that can cause liver problems. Doctors told the officer that there was a “risk of communicable disease transmission from human bites.”

In AZ she would be charged with a C3 F agg-asslt on a PO and would head to DOC. If the officer does test positive it would be attempt homicide here. This is how they should handle this case. Send her butt to DOC as a show that this will not be tolerated. If that officer gets sick or dies over an assault like this she should be held responsible as if she shot him.

Amen to that! Except in other states they would treat her as sick with a disease. Followed by a free cell phone, EBT card and housing. Did I forget free tuition at Harvard.

I blame P.M.S. for this!!!

Same as the other posts. She should be charged with a felony assault on a peace officer. If she broke the skin & does indeed test positive for Hep. C then it needs to be raised to, attempted murder of-a peace officer in the performance of duty(ies). Now he has to go through a battery of shots (which usually make you sick) to counter-act it.

Test her, charge her and lock her away so she can't do this to anyone else.

Interesting that because she is a white woman, no one blaming President Obama or anyone black...

That is because white people get no special treatment from Obama, Eric Holder or Al sharpton when they commit crimes like blacks do fairness.
