It isnâ€™t wholly unheard of to be at a bar and to get a hankering for some nuts. Hell, thatâ€™s why many keep bowls of them freshly stocked on the bar. It isnâ€™t too common, however, to have an urge to go after a whole other kind, much less a set of them, when drinking.
Michael Flaig, 31, a 10-year veteran of the neighboring Anne Arundel County Police Department, has brought unwanted attention on Baltimore once again. While celebrating Cinco de Mayo, he was drunk at a Baltimore bar, he was confronted by a man who was the roommate and friend of a woman whom Flaig had allegedly been touching.
When said male roommate left the bar a little before, he alleges Flaig and a second man who has yet to be identified, jumped him. Somehow, in details it may be best that we donâ€™t know as of yet, the victimâ€™s testicles ended up in Flaigâ€™s mouth â€“ and he bit down â€“ at least enough to draw blood.
A female had witnessed all of the events and was able to lead officers to another drinking establishment sheâ€™d seen Flaig enter. There, he was found on the second floor and had blood stains on his shirt.
Anne Arundel County Chief of Police Timothy J Altomare called the allegations â€˜disturbing,â€™ adding in a statement, â€œThese charges are disturbing and we have an obligation as police officers to conduct ourselves in a professional manner on and off-duty. We will cooperate fully with the Baltimore Police Department as they conduct their investigation. At this time, we cannot comment further because for our agency, this is a confidential personally matter.â€
Flaig is facing second-degree assault and public intoxication charges.
