Well, this is surprising. A Perth woman has been sentenced with six months behind bars for biting a police officer’s arm at Origin NYE – now Origin Fields – festival back in 2016.
PerthNow reports that the chomp was a part of a scuffle between the woman, named Amina Robert Lowoja, and the police officer, who was placing her under arrest for fighting with event security.
“While obtaining her account of events, Ms Lowoja kicked a security officer to his abdomen,” a WA Police Union spokesperson said.
“When the officer was placing her under arrest, Ms Lowoja lent in and bit his left upper bicep.”
The bite left a four-centimetre puncture and bruising on the officer, but did not cause any permanent damage.
Lowoja was charged with assaulting an officer and common assault before being on trial last November.
She’s been sentenced to a mandatory six months prison with eligibility for parole.
