This bar fight went "south."
Officer Michael Flaig looking pretty ashamed of himself.
As you are probably well aware, police officers (especially Baltimore police officers) have been in the national spotlight recently, and not because they are doing their job really well. To add to a long list of inappropriate behavior, an off duty cop at a local Cinco de Mayo celebration in Baltimore got into a fistfight behind a bar. But the brawl wasn't a good, ol' above-the-belt scuffle. Apparently, the Anne Arundel county officer Michael Flaig sent the other man to the hospital after biting his testicles.
The fight started when the inebriated officer continued to make unwanted advances toward a woman at the bar, who repeatedly asked him to stop. I am not a dating expert, but if you are already bothering a woman, trying to bite off another man's manhood isn't what you do to change her mind. I think that is literally what separates us from animals; even then the male animals that just dance around with bright colors are a lot more appealing to me.
Thomas Bourne, a witness to the fight, told WBaltTV11 that "the bitee actually got the better of [Flaig] in the fist fight." Once officers arrived on the scene, they found Flaig at a nearby bar. The charging report stated he had "blood stains on his shirt and appeared inebriated." Perhaps other bar patrons didn't take notice because that might not be too strange on Cinco de Mayo.
Flaig was arrested, but got off on bond. He is currently suspended with pay while the Anne Arundel Police Department is figuring out how to tell him you don't bite other people's private parts.
