Winnipeg police say a man has been arrested after he allegedly bit an officer while they were responding to a disturbance call.

On Saturday at 11:30 p.m. officers went to a multi-dwelling apartment building in the 300 block of Kennedy Street to check the well-being of a man who was reportedly acting erratically and aggressively towards the public.

Police say attending officers found the man outside the building exhibiting signs of experiencing an agitated chaotic event due to apparent drug use.
