French Athlete Fined For Biting a Policeman

From the BBC I found this funny runners story:

“French former athletics world champion Eunice Barber has been fined 5,000 euros (£4,271) for resisting arrest, insulting and biting a policeman.”

The Sierra Leone-born athlete won heptathlon and long jump world titles for France in 1999 and 2003.

Her Defence

In court she did not deny biting the cop, she even had a good reason why she did it. She said she had bitten the officer to “protect her body”, describing it as her “source of work”.
