BALTIMORE (AP) — A Maryland police officer has been suspended after being accused of biting another man’s testicles during a fight outside a bar while he was off-duty on Cinco de Mayo.

The Baltimore Sun reports Anne Arundel County police officer Michael Flaig, 31, was charged Tuesday after Baltimore police say the victim accused Flaig, who was off-duty, of groping his female roommate.

Police say during the fight, the victim straddled Flaig to keep him from getting away and Flaig bit his testicles.

Anne Arundel County police spokesman T.J. Smith says Flaig will be suspended and placed on administrative duties. Flaig didn’t have an attorney listed in online court records.
