LONGMONT, Colo. – A man believed to have been high on LSD who was arrested during a domestic violence call faces an extra charge of second-degree assault after he allegedly bit a Longmont police officer multiple times.

Joshua David Corbin, 19, faces domestic violence, harassment, resisting arrest and second-degree assault charges in the incident, which happened Tuesday night at Kanemoto Park.

The Boulder Daily Camera reports that officers responded to a disturbance at the park and saw Corbin assaulting three people. The paper reports that Corbin allegedly fought with the responding officer, and that police had to use a Taser twice to subdue him.

The Daily Camera reports that Corbin’s friends told officers he had taken LSD; he was hospitalized in Longmont until the drugs wore off.

The officer who was bitten has since returned to duty, and Corbin had bonded out of jail by Thursday, according to jail records.
