A Chicago Police sergeant was kicked in the back and an officer bitten in the hand by one of two men arrested outside a Far South Side strip club early Sunday. The arrests came after one of the men had punched a manager of the club, police said.
A Calumet District police sergeant was patrolling in the area of the 12000 block of South Doty Road at 1:45 a.m. when a patron of a nearby strip club walked up to the club’s manager and punched him in the face, police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said.
The sergeant, who was in uniform, began to place 25-year-old Marcus Shief under arrest, but he resisted, Mirabelli said. The sergeant was able to subdue Shief, but as he did, another man, 21-year-old Taylor Bryant-Anderson, grabbed the sergeant from behind and kicked him in the back, according to Mirabelli.
Assisting officers arrived at the scene, and Bryant-Anderson was also taken into custody — but he didn’t go down without a fight either, according to police.
