Although posts sympathetic to police officers are rarely seen on this blog, I feel for the cop in the following article.

Woman Pleads No Contest to Biting Off Cop's Finger in Fight Over Kitten
New York Lawyer March 21, 2006 By The Associated Press
MILWAUKEE -- A woman faces up to three years in prison for biting off part of a police officer's finger during an argument over a kitten, authorities said Monday.
The officer was called to Pamela Greenlee's house because she was having a dispute with a man over the sale of a kitten and wanted police to remove him from her home. The officer was trying to restrain her when she bit off part of his right ring finger, police said.
Greenlee, 40, pleaded no contest on Monday to charges of battery to a law enforcement officer.
The finger was not reattached, Milwaukee County Assistant District Attorney Kevin Shomin told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Under the terms of a plea agreement, prosecutors dropped a second misdemeanor charge of resisting an officer in exchange for her serving some prison time. Prosecutors agreed to not recommend a specific term.
The poor guy responded to what he likely believed would be an uneventful call involving a kitten and is now sans finger.
