A Detroit milkman was charged with biting the leg of a policeman while under the influence of alcohol. In his defense, the accused stated that he had a few drinks after he was bitten by a dog on the leg during his rounds. When he saw a policeman, the milkman complained about the dog and proceeded to demonstrate how he was attacked. He remarked that the policeman’s injury could not have been serious, as he wasn’t wearing his false teeth at the time of the incident!
The defendant was given a suspended sentence.
