Maria Klaus, 38, is a biter.
This story helps explain why police dread domestic-disturbance calls. Even in Australia. The Sunshine Coast Daily reports:
Jennings and Constable Leonie Scott were called to Ms Klaus' unit in Beach Parade at 5:30pm on June 12.
The pair testified that Kevin Hughes was waiting at the door of the unit and had invited them in to speak "to her".
Const Jennings said the 38-year-old Klaus appeared, wet and wrapped in a towel, and started yelling ...
Const Jennings said the first assault ensued when he placed his hand on Ms Klaus' left arm and told her he was detaining her under the Domestic and Family Violence Act.
He said he had trouble gripping Ms Klaus because she was naked and wet and the pair ended up on the ground.
"It was a flurry of head-butts, bites, kneeing me and punching," he said.
"There was ... gnashing of teeth. As her face was coming towards me she was snapping her teeth, chomping.
"I actually felt her nose go into my mouth. When I was on the ground I felt my face, it was covered in saliva and there was blood."
Const Jennings said he had to break his tie to release Ms Klaus' grip, whereupon she kicked him in the chest and shoulder with her feet.
"She was yelling at me that she was going to get my balls," he said. "Even though she was small ... she was quite muscular and powerful."
Back-up arrived after the pair eventually got handcuffs on Ms Klaus to help escort her downstairs to a van.
Const Jennings said his attention was only diverted for a few seconds when he felt "a sudden crushing pain".
"I felt an excruciating pain at the end of my penis ... I looked down and her head was over the top of my groin and she was biting me," he said.
"I was in a lot of pain, shock and I screamed."
