Baltimore Cop Charged With Biting Guy's Testicles

If police reports are to be believed, Michael Flaig is a bit of a dirty fighter. As the Baltimore Sun reports, Flaig, a 31-year-old Anne Arundel County cop, has been charged with assault after a bar fight Tuesday that police say ended with Flaig, who was off-duty at the time, biting another man's testicles. Flaig's victim, who's not named, told cops that Flaig was groping his female roommate; he says he told Flaig to stop and began walking home. Flaig then allegedly jumped the victim from behind and the two fell to the ground; when the male victim straddled Flaig to prevent him from leaving, he says Flaig bit his groin.

"These charges are disturbing and we have an obligation as police officers to conduct ourselves in a professional manner on and off-duty," says Anne Arundel's police chief. Flaig will be suspended. (More Baltimore stories.)
