On Tuesday, officials detained a Virginia man who was reported to be wandering around without clothes. The officials also charged the man for a series of events including smoking weed, biting his dog and also biting an off-duty FBI agent in the neck, police said.
After the officials responded the scene in Manassas around 8:35 a.m, they found the suspect, Cory Michael Phillips, 31, standing naked in the middle of the road, says reports.
Prince William County police told the news reporters that the officers initially tried to detain the suspect but were unsuccessful. The officers then used pepper spray on Phillips as he was under the influence of something, said William.
“The accused then advanced toward an off-duty FBI agent who had stopped to assist the officer, and a struggle ensued between all the parties,” according to the incident report. “During the struggle, the accused bit the FBI agent, identified as a 51-year-old male, on the neck causing a minor injury.”
Local sources say that the authorities later discovered that Phillips created the nuisance under the influence of marijuana which he smoked that morning at his home.
“At some point, the accused picked up his 5-year-old Labrador-boxer mix dog and began to squeeze it before biting the dog on the ears and chest causing minor injuries,” the incident report said. “The accused then went outside where he eventually pushed a neighbor, identified as a 60-year-old woman, to the ground who had attempted to intervene before officers arrived.”
The woman wasn’t hurt in the encounter, authorities continued.
There have been reports that after officials detained Philips, he was then taken to a hospital before being transported to the Adult Detention Center. Philips at present is held without bond, police said.
The court document says that Philips is charged with malicious wounding, assault & battery, obstruction of justice, animal cruelty, possession of marijuana and public intoxication.
