New Jersey Officer Hospitalized After Being Bitten by Woman

September 28, 2015  | 

A 25-year-old Aberdeen Township,N.J., woman bit a police officer and "refused to let go" Saturday night after resisting arrest, police said.

Several officers responded at around 10 p.m. to a residence on Hawthorne Street in the Cliffwood Beach section of town after receiving a report of a fight, Chief John Powers said in an email.

He said a female, later identified as Jennifer Loughlin, "appeared to be heavily intoxicated, uncooperative, and disorderly."

After told she was under arrest, Loughlin "physically resisted" Officer Frank Maisano's effort to place her in handcuffs, Powers said.

Loughlin was taken into custody with the assistance of officers Jessica McDougall and Charles Trucillo, Powers said. But then Loughlin bit McDougall on the arm and "refused to let go," the chief said.

Loughlin went to jail and Officer McDougall was taken to the hospital for treatment, NJ.com reports.
