A 28-year-old man is behind bars after he punched and bit an area police officer and injured another.
Rony Ariel Ramos-Perez of Wappingers Falls was arrested for aggravated DWI, felony assault, resisting arrest, and other charges, around 10 p.m. Saturday, May 19, following a traffic stop, said Town of Poughkeepsie Capt. Kevin Faber.
When officers stopped Ramos-Perez they found that he was driving while drunk and when the officer attempted to arrest him he punched and bit one officer and caused minor injuries to another before he was eventually placed into custody, Faber said.
He is being held on $100,000 cash bail or $200,000 bond at the Dutchess County Jail.
