Chinese man Bai Ting was charged and arrested Tuesday after he allegedly bit a police officer.
Bai, 28, was also charged with being drunk and incapable of taking care of himself in public.
Around 7 p.m. on Sunday, Bai was found drunk at Lorong 27A Geylang and arrested. At 9 p.m., he reportedly bit police Sergeant Ng Wen Chi’s forearm at the Bedok Police Division Headquarters lockup.
Bai faces a maximum fine of $1,000 and one month in jail for public intoxication and disorderliness. He also faces up to seven years in jail, caning and fines for injuring a police officer.
The news will surely remind some of U.S. news station KTVU, which was famously pranked last year when its news casters read out fake foreign names that sounded like English words.
