Kansas Councilwoman Bites Police Officer's Thumb Hard Enough To Break It, Police Say

A small-town Kansas councilwoman allegedly bit a corrections officer so hard last week while being booked in jail that she broke the officer's thumb.

Deputies with the Atchison County Sheriff’s Office tried to arrest 48-year-old Carol Fowler on June 29 "for a failure to appear warrant," KSHB reported.

During the arrest, deputies had to use tasers on Fowler to place her under arrest and later charged her with "battery on a law enforcement officer."

Days later, while in jail, Fowler allegedly bit a corrections officer's thumb during the booking process when the officer was removing personal items off of her. Fowler bit the officer so hard that she reportedly broke his thumb.

Heavy reports that Fowler was elected as a councilwoman in Huron after she won only two votes total in 2017. The fact-finding website also reports that Fowler is not affiliated with any political parties and it appears as though her social media accounts have been scrubbed from the internet so it's not possible to ascertain her political views.
