A California Highway Patrol officer required medical attention after he was allegedly bitten by a woman he and other officers were attempting to subdue near Highway 4 in Concord Sunday.
The officer suffered a bite injury to the left forearm. Initial information is that he and at least one other “cover” officer were attempting to stop a woman seen walking, pants-less on the freeway near Arnold Industrial Way at about 12:48 p.m. – after getting initial reports of someone throwing rocks at cars on the freeway.
Officers approached the woman in an apparent attempt to detain her when a struggle ensued and the officer sustained the bite injury. Standard protocols were initiated after the incident with the officer checked out for possible infection issues after the penetrating bite and struggle.
The unidentified woman was also transported to a local hospital for observation.
