HANOVER, Md. — A Baltimore man is facing charges after allegedly assaulting a police officer Sunday night at Maryland Live Casino.

Anne Arundel County Police say 35-year-old Keenen Aaron Douglas Sparrow bit one of their officers as they were trying to get him into a patrol car.

Officers were initially called to the location because Sparrow had reportedly been intoxicated and acting disorderly.

At first police were going to let Sparrow leave, but while walking away he began damaging casino property.

That's when he was taken into custody.

The officer suffered a minor arm laceration that was treated at the hospital.

Sparrow was not injured during the arrest.
