A man in his 30s who bit a police officer on the move while making a fuss while visiting his ex's house has been sentenced to probation.

The Jeju District Court's 3rd Criminal Division (Chief Judge Kim Yeon-kyung) announced today (8th) that 38-year-old A, who was charged with personal injury, obstruction of the execution of official duties, and damage to property, was sentenced to one year in prison and two years of probation.

At around midnight on September 19, 2020, Mr. A went to the house of his ex-girlfriend, B, who lives in Jeju-do, and knocked on the door saying, "Let me in." However, Mr. B did not open the door, and Mr. A, who was furious, made a commotion by kicking the glass window of the door with his feet and breaking it.

Even when the police were dispatched after receiving the 112 call, Mr. A could not calm his excitement. It was investigated that Mr. A pushed the neck of a police officer who was trying to arrest him as a current offender, struck him in the face with his elbow, and eventually bit his right thigh with his mouth.

The policeman suffered a two-week dislocation to his thigh in the incident.

The court explained the reason for the sentencing, saying, "The accused is not of good quality, such as assaulting a police officer who is carrying out his legitimate duties." But, "I have agreed with some victims, and I have taken into account the fact that I promised not to commit a crime again with a remorseful attitude."

This is a 'news pick'.
