GRAYLING, Mich. — A Northern Michigan man bit a state police trooper in the arm and wrist when they tried to arrest him for smoking marijuana against his bond, police said.

State police said a trooper and a Grayling police officer were looking for a wanted person at a Grayling Township address about 11:40 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 13 when they heard a voice coming from a camper.

A 23-year-old man inside then invited police into the camper. Once inside, police noted a smell of freshly burned marijuana and the 23-year-old admitted to smoking marijuana.

Police said four children, ages 1 to 9, also were in the camper.

Police then went to arrest the man because he had a court bond that prohibited him from use of alcohol, marijuana or illegal controlled substances.

The man then fought with the officers, police said. He bit the trooper’s arm and wrist before he was subdued with a TASER.

The trooper later was treated and released from Munson Healthcare Grayling Hospital for minor injuries. The man, identified as Howard Anglemyer of Grayling, was charged with two counts of assaulting a police officer causing injury, resisting a police officer and assault and battery, police said.
