Man Charged With Biting Cop Outside Boystown Library

Florian (inset) is charged with aggravated battery of a police officer outside the Merlo Library.
A Logan Square man bit a 19th district cop’s arm so hard, the officer suffered “deep round lacerations…bleeding and bruising” even though he was wearing a leather uniform jacket at the time, according to court records.

The incident happened at 3:30 p.m. on March 2 while the officer was conducting a routine premise check at the Merlo Library, 644 West Belmont.

According to police, the officer tried to detain Timothy G. Florian after seeing the 35-year-old kick the side of the cop’s squad car.

Florian resisted, and the officer tried using pepper spray, but that failed when Florian blocked the spray with his hand, police said.

Florian then bit the officer on the left bicep as the two struggled on the ground, according to a report that said Florian was eventually tamed after the injured cop “used stun blows to the head…to stop the assault.”

The officer and Florian were treated at Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

Florian, charged with aggravated battery of a police officer, is jailed in lieu of $50,000 bail.

  1. He's probably a recent transplant that traveled far for COH and heard it's common to destroy police cars in the area (but nobody told him only on Pride weekend).

  2. He's lucky he didn't get his teeth extracted before he hit the lock-up.

  3. I feel very sorry for the police in this neighborhood. How hard is it to check a library in a gay neighborhood in the middle of the afternoon without violence?

  4. Pepper spray, sun blows to head, and he was "eventually" tamed. Yes, let's disarm the police in the name of civil rights, by all means.

  6. If it were an average citizen he munched down on it would have been charged as simple assault.

  7. What is a routine premise check.
    Did the librarians call the police?

    1. A routine premise check is a random check of public facilities like parks, schools and libraries. It is routine (until you run into a guy like this).
