TULSA, Okla. – A burglary suspect decided to fight Tulsa police during his arrest with the help of his teeth.
Tulsa police officers responded to a burglary in progress at the Lakes Apartments.
Police say upon arrival at the apartments near 81st and Riverside, Chris Howard was found crawling out of a broken apartment window.
Officers apprehended Howard, but the arrest did not suit the suspect as he reportedly bit two officers.
The suspect allegedly broke into two separate apartment homes by kicking in a door and breaking a window.
According to authorities, Howard “ransacked the apartments.”
Victims were able to get their items back once the suspect was taken into custody.
The burglary suspect required medical attention before being booked into the Tulsa County Jail.
Howard was arrested for multiple complaints, including two counts of 2nd-degree burglary, assault, and battery on two police officers, resisting arrest, obstructing justice, and concealing stolen property.
How Howard concealed the stolen items is unknown. What we do know is that the officers’ bite wounds were minor and not considered serious injuries.
Howard’s surety bonds total a whopping $70,000. (Tulsa Police Department’s Facebook Page).
