A Sioux City teen is accused of biting a police officer while possibly high on acid.
According to court documents, 19-Year-Old Tavion Harris bit an officer back in April after being taken to Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City for treatment.
Authorities say they were called out to a complaint that someone was overdosing on acid. When they arrived at the residence, they found Harris lying on the floor. When police attempted to speak with him authorities say that he picked up a small table and began swinging it at them.
After being taken to Mercy Medical Center, police say that Harris became agitated and began flailing around in his bed. As officers tried to restrain him, authorities claim that Harris bit one of them on the back of the leg, breaking the skin and leaving a bruise.
A marijuana pipe was also found on Harris when he was taken into custody.
He’s currently being charged with one count of Assault on a Peace Officer, which is an Aggravated Misdemeanor in the state of Iowa. An Aggravated Misdemeanor carries a penalty of up to 2 years in jail and a $6,250 fine.
He’s also being charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
