Police: Officer Bitten While Trying to Book Suspect

Officials say a Massachusetts police officer was allegedly bitten while attempting to book a suspect.

Boston police say an officer was bitten in the leg Sunday while responding to a loud music complaint in the neighborhood of Dorchester.

They arrested 25-year-old Lacorey Waiters and 27-year-old Travis White of Boston for failing to comply with orders. During booking, Waiters allegedly bit one of the officers in the right leg as they attempted to restrain him.

Both men are being charged with assault and battery and disturbing the peace. Waiters will additionally be charged with assault and battery on a police officer.

Attorneys for Waiters and White could not be immediately identified.
