More Biting Attacks in the News

Anthony Celley

Anthony Celley

Anthony Celley, 30, of Monona, Wisconsin, was in the midst of committing his fourth drunk driving offense, when he was pulled over by police around 6 p.m. on October 22, 2012. According to police, once the vehicle was stopped, Celley got out and would not follow the officer’s instructions, which led to a struggle, which led to a call for back up and more struggling, and finally led to an arrest for OWI. Celley was handcuffed and led to the cruiser, but was still not willing to comply with officers commands, and continued resisting. On the way to the jail officers stopped to secure Celley, who had damaged the cruiser, and that’s when he decided to chomp down on the officer, causing battery on a police officer to be added to the charges of fourth offense drunk driving, resisting arrest, and criminal damage to property.

Around 9 a.m., also on Monday, Landel Carlisle of far west Bexar County, Texas, heard a knock at the door. Before he was able to respond, the person went around to the back of the house, according to Carlisle, to break in. “I put my shoes on, grabbed a hammer, I went out to my backyard and I opened the door, and as soon as I opened the door I said, ‘What are trying to do?’ Carlisle told police, “He ran outside, jumped the gate and shot his gun at me twice. I ducked.” Carlisle then chased the suspect to a waiting getaway car, and jumped in with him, fighting him in the car, “He shot at me. I ducked the shot. I tried to get the gun and hold his wrist at the same time. That’s when I bit his ear — I bit something — whatever I could bite to try to get loose of the gun. It didn’t work. I punched him. That didn’t work. When I punched him, I let loose of his right arm, so he had both of his hands on the gun at that time.” The suspect pointed the gun at Carlisle, and Carlisle jumped out of the vehicle. Though he probably sent a clear message to anyone contemplating hitting his house again, Carlisle admitted, “I did a stupid move. I don’t recommend anybody fight anybody with a gun.” Armed Sherriff’s deputies located the suspect and surrounded the nearby home in which he was hiding, but waited while the teen’s guardian talked him into going peacefully. The suspect has not yet been identified.

Jargget Washington

Jargget Washington

Jargget Washington, 29, of Jersey City was reportedly high on PCP when allegedly stripped naked, and screamed unintelligibly while attacking cars at a busy intersection. Police arrived right around 8 p.m., just after Washington fought with one driver as he tried unsuccessfully to pull him out of his vehicle. On seeing police, Washington adopted a crouching stance and told them to “Come on, come on,” which they did, restraining him and taking him to the Jersey City Medical Center where he was medically and psychologically cleared. PCP, however, is a tricky drug, which can cause users to violently hallucinate as suddenly as they might stop, for no apparent reason. On the way back to the jail things got bad. Washington reportedly started out by spitting at officers and defecating on himself while still in his hospital clothes. He then ate his medical ID bracelet, and started trying to get the cuffs off by chewing at his wrists. Later, in jail, he bit off and swallowed his own finger. He was readmitted to the medical center for treatment. Washington is charged with carjacking, throwing bodily fluids at law enforcement officers and being under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance.
