A homeless North Miami Beach man under the influence of drugs was arrested after police say he became disorderly and then growled and tried to bite an officer.
Brandon De Leon, 21, was arrested Saturday and faces charges including disorderly conduct and resisting an officer with violence, according to online arrest records. He remains in jail and is being held on $5,500 bond, reports NBC Miami.
North Miami Beach Police said De Leon slammed his head repeatedly against the plexiglass of a police car and told the officer "I'm going to eat you." While being treated for his self-inflicted abrasions, De Leon began to act like an animal and "launched to bite" an officer closest to him, an incident report said.
