Limassol woman bites traffic police officer

A Limassol woman sank her teeth into a police officer as she was being placed under arrest, following her refusal to identify herself or take a Breathalyzer test.

Traffic police were patrolling Franklin Roosevelt Avenue on Saturday after midnight, when at 2:30am they noticed someone driving erratically and in a dangerous way.

When officers stopped the car, driven by a 43-year-old woman, they asked her to provide identification documents but she refused. She was also asked to take a Breathalyzer test, but she did not give her consent for that either.

At that point, a police officer asked her to exit the vehicle and told her she was being placed under arrest.

As the woman was exiting the car, both feet first, she began kicking the officers and even bit one of them on the left wrist, according to police.

The woman was taken into custody while police were trying to sort out her situation.
