Police Investigation Report, Arrested
McFarland “threw rocks and a small trash can” at the caller and tried to hit the driver, police wrote in the affidavit. As officers moved to remove McFarland from the bus, he kicked and threw a rock at a police dog, police said. He also punched three officers, spat on three more, and bit an officer’s ear, dislodging the earlobe, according to the affidavit. Police were unable to retrieve the officer’s earlobe and attempt to reattach it, police said. As a result, the officer was permanently disfigured. McFarland, covered in blood, was eventually apprehended after he was electrocuted by police. He faces several charges, including assault, mistreatment of a police animal, and mutilation, according to records.
