Combative arrestee goes down
Woman 'chomped' at officer's groin: court
BRACE yourself boys: you will cringe.
Police Constable Anthony Jennings certainly did when he felt a "crushing sensation" in the groin.
"Excruciating pain" were the words he used to describe the moment Maria Klaus allegedly "chomped" on his penis after a domestic violence incident in Maroochydore a year ago.
The softly spoken Const Jennings, 43, had to share possibly his worst day on the job in the Maroochydore District Court in front a jury and the woman accused of seriously assaulting him twice.
Const 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.
He said she pushed Mr Hughes hard in the chest with two hands, and twice threw a three-year-old child by one arm behind her.
Const Jennings said the first assault ensued when he placed his hand on Ms Klausˇ¦ 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 ˇ§a sudden crushing painˇ¨.
"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."
Barrister Steve Courtney suggested police were not invited into the unit, Const Jennings did not understand his detaining powers under the domestic violence legislation and Ms Klaus did not bite the policeman's penis.
But Constable Leonie Scott backed up his claims when she took the stand.
The trial continues today.

Used to have a prostitute on beat that you had to fight like a man. She could do things to you one would think not possible. The only thing that would set things right was a hay making right hook. Sounds like this is what should have been done in this instance before it got that far out of hand. Wow, it hurt to even read it.Facta non verba

I think I would have had to knock her into the next area code.

Hey any time tries to take your weapon, deadly force is an option. Does that apply here?

We as well had one like that, she bit me under the arm one day when we were fighting her, it hurt like hell, but my old wooden baton felt worse for her I think.
