Police: Burglary suspect bites and spits on officers during arrest

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A man being arrested in connection with a home break-in Sunday also faces battery and resistance charges after allegedly spitting on one police officer and biting another.

The Baton Rouge Police Department reported Ryan Schexnayder, 28, was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of aggravated burglary, resisting an officer with force, two counts of battery on a police officer and fugitive warrants. His bond was set at $40,000.

According to the probable cause report, the victim told police a would-be burglar threw a shovel through a back window, claimed to have a knife and said he was going inside the home. The responding officer stated in the report he heard a window break and saw a man matching the suspect's description walking away from the house.

The report added when the officer told the man to stop, he instead ran off, but was eventually caught. The report indicated Schexnayder resisted as the officer tried to handcuff him.

"I deployed my taser and was able to detain the suspect," the report stated.

The action apparently subdued him for some time, but the report added while officers were trying to put Schexnayder into the police car, he continued to resist and that's when he allegedly spit on one of the officers and bit another.
