BERLIN (Reuters) - A man resisting an order to leave his home became so angry he bit the police car he was being pinned against, German authorities said on Wednesday.
Police tried to eject the 42-year-old man, of Russian origin, after a report of domestic violence. He became aggressive and officers pinned him face down on the bonnet of their patrol car and he began chewing its police markings.
"He was so angry he gnawed at the bonnet and bit through the paintwork," said a police spokesman in the western city of Bielefeld. "Who knows, perhaps he was hungry too."
The bonnet would need its markings replacing and a new coat of paint, the spokesman said.
Good voting this time - it was split right down the middle.
