Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla. It’s also a day to eat Mexican food, get sloppy drunk, get into a street fight and bite someone in the testicles – at least for police officer Michael Flaig it was.
He was relieved of duty, LOL.
The fight started when the victim (whose name has not yet been disclosed) confronted Flaig, a 10-year veteran of the Anne Arundel County Police Department, and another man for touching his female friend and roommate. Flaig and the other man jumped him and that’s when the alleged testicle biting happened.
The fight spilled out into the alley behind Looney’s Pub in Baltimore. A woman who witnessed the fight said that Flaig was wearing a blue and white polo shirt and cargo shorts (of course he was). Thomas Bourne, another witness who tried to break up the fight said “The bite actually got the better of him in the fist fight. After we broke them up is when he disclosed he’d been bitten in the testicles.” I don’t really think anyone “got the better” of anything in this fight.
Bourne also pointed out that the victim was upset (obviously) and needed medical assistance because “he was bleeding in his area after what happened.” Now that is a vision you won’t get out of your head for the rest of the day.
It was reported that the other attacker fled the scene, but they found Flaig on the floor of another bar down the street with a blood stained shirt, blood shot eyes, reeked of alcohol and was slurring his words. He was charged with second-degree assault and intoxication. That’ll teach him never to eat the nuts at the bar.
