In a story that sounds more like something out of a zombie or vampire flick, an officer is lucky to have only suffered minor injuries after a 28 year-old allegedly took a chomp out of him. This is yet another story that gives you an idea just what law enforcement has to deal with, and how dangerous their jobs can be.

WROC says the incident happened November 17 when police were called to the city of Canandaigua for a medical emergency. Once they arrived, the hungry suspect allegedly bit one of the officers on the arm.

There are not many details yet what the medical emergency was initially about. There also is no information if drugs and alcohol were involved.

The man was arrested and charged with second degree assault. The officer was treated at Thompson Hospital and released.
