New York man arrested after allegedly biting officer breaking up wedding brawl

A man in New York was arrested on Monday night after he allegedly bit a police officer who was helping break up a fight.

Police in Suffolk County said officers responded to the Flowerfield wedding venue in St. James after a fight broke out at a wedding reception, according to News12.

Suffolk Chief of Patrol Gerard Hardy said a guest not invited to the wedding reception showed up and caused trouble.

“From preliminary reports, it looks like an uninvited guest showed up and that triggered a chain of events, which ended up turning into a large fight,” Hardy said.

 

The other individual arrested faces charges of harassment and obstructing governmental administration for shoving an officer.
