An Auburn man will spend time in prison for biting a police officer.
In August, Rian Glover, 41, was running around in people’s yards and banging on doors in the area of Grove Avenue in Auburn when he resisted arrest and bit and injured an Auburn Police Department officer.
Glover, of 35 Augustus St., was sentenced in Cayuga County Court Thursday for second-degree attempted assault, a class E felony. At the time of his January plea, Glover said he was on synthetic drugs the night of his crime.
“Overall, he’s a good guy,” said Ben Susman, Glover’s defense attorney. “These drugs have impacted his life and I’m hoping this is (a) wake-up call.”
“I just want to apologize to the court, community and especially the police officer involved,” Glover said.
Judge Thomas Leone sentenced Glover to 1 1/3 to four years in prison with a shock camp order, which is a six-month program involving intense structure, substance abuse treatment and group counseling. He will also have to pay nearly $1,300 in restitution for property damage caused.
