Jimmy Liks patron accused of biting cops

Langley RCMP say intoxicated man was in Langley nightclub before biting one officer's hand and another's ankle

A 23-year-old Langley man is accused of biting one police officer on the ankle and another on the hand, after allegedly falling on his face drunk and refusing help coming out of Jimmy Liks bar early Saturday morning.

Langley officers were at the 196A Street bar at closing time when they were alerted by bouncers to a man at the front door who was causing problems.

Two officers spoke with the man who was visibly intoxicated, but were called away as it appeared a fight was about to break out elsewhere, said police.

Once the officers were free, they once again found the intoxicated man.

His friends offered to take care of him but he broke away from them and fell, face first, onto the pavement.

He got up and continued to run toward Langley Bypass, removing his shirt as he ran.

The officers followed him and found him inside a nearby McDonald’s restaurant lying on the floor. His friends were still trying to help him but he wasn’t interested in their assistance, said police.

He got up and ran out of the restaurant into the parking lot where he fell again.

The officers decided the man was unable to care for himself and approached him as he laid on the ground.

He was told he was under arrest and at this time he began yelling and would not co-operate with the officers.

As they picked him up to move him to the police car, he allegedly bit one of the officers on his ankle and the other on his hand.

Police will be recommending charges to Crown Counsel for the 23-year-old Langley man.

He has been released from custody to appear in Surrey Provincial court on May 5.

Langley RCMP Insp. Stephan Drolet cites this as, “an example of what our officers are often subjected to.

“One of the two officers required medical treatment for the bite to his hand and will recover, however the psychological trauma attached to being bitten by a human may have long-lasting effects.”
