Trooper Bit By Suspect Described As "Disturbed"

When state police responded to a disturbed person complaint, they didn't realize that meant the disturbed person liked to bite.

Troopers responded to the call early Tuesday morning on Roxboro Drive and met a man who said he was concerned about his friend Noah Rivers who arrived acting strange and now the man wanted Rivers to leave. When troopers told Rivers he must leave or be arrested, he refused to leave and was arrested. Rivers began to resist. When he was placed in the patrol car, Rivers bit the trooper in the upper leg, causing a good deal of pain and bleeding. The trooper was treated and released. Rivers was taken to St. Joseph's hospital for evaluation before being house in the Justice Center. Rivers is charged with assault, criminal tresspass, and resisting arrests
