A 34-year-old man faces charges of felony assault and assault with a bodily fluid after he allegedly licked the eyeball of a police officer attempting to arrest him on Saturday.
As first reported in the Smoking Gun, Christopher Hiatt called Butte, Montana police on Saturday night to report a theft. Things took a turn for the worse for Hiatt when responding officers discovered an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
At first, Hiatt resisted arrest, though police eventually managed to get him in handcuffs. That wasn’t the end of the ordeal, though. As officers tried to force him into a squad car, Hiatt allegedly leaned forward and licked one of their eyeballs. All of this occurred in front of Butte’s famous Pisser’s Palace bar.
Hiatt is being held on four charges. His bond was set at $45,000.
