Conn. woman bitten after 'bite me' remark, police say
An instructor at the Connecticut Police Academy has been charged with disorderly conduct after he allegedly responded literally to a co-worker's "bite me" remark.
Francis Woodruff, a former Waterbury police captain, was arraigned Tuesday and released on a promise to appear in court. He is accused of biting the arm of 42-year-old Rochelle Wyler, a license and applications analyst at the academy, on April 24.
According to the arrest report, she was left with teeth marks and bruising on her left triceps.
Wyler filed a complaint April 28, alleging the 51-year-old Woodruff was agitating her by calling her a clerk. She says she responded with "bite me" -- and he did.
Woodruff, who also is a training coordinator with the Meriden Police, told authorities he was joking around.
