Chinese man named Bai Ting charged with biting police officer

Man was arrested for public drunkenness

Chinese man Bai Ting has been arrested after allegedly biting a police officer in Singapore.

The 28-year-old also faces charges of being drunk and incapable of taking care of himself in a public place.

The Chinese national was found drunk at Lorong 27A Geyland at about 7pm on Sunday, before being taken to a lock-up at Bedok Police Division Headquarters where he reportedly bit Sergeant Ng Wen Chi's right forearm.

Bai faces a fine of up to S$1,000 and a month of jail time for the alcohol offences, while hurting a police officer could see him sent down for seven years, caned and fined.

The news will surely sound alarm bells at US news station KTVU, which famously got stung by a 'foreign names sound out English words' prank last year.

A cruel viewer gave a tip-off that a plane that crashed in San Francisco was piloted by the crack team of ‘Sum Ting Wong’, ‘Wi Tu Lo’, ‘Ho Lee Fuk’ and ‘Bang Ding Ow’, which anchors read out on-air.
