CLEVELAND (AP) – A Cleveland woman says an off-duty city police officer bit her during an argument and then attempted to stop her from leaving the home where the incident occurred.

Northeast Ohio Media Group reports 34-year-old Patrolman Mister Jackson was arrested and charged with abduction Saturday. He is scheduled to appear Tuesday in Cleveland Municipal Court.

Police say the woman claims an armed Jackson bit her on the right side of her chest, leaving a red mark.

The woman told officers she fled the house fearing Jackson and a scuffle ensued in her car that led to the vehicle striking a nearby house.

A police spokeswoman said Jackson has been placed on unpaid administrative leave.

Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Association President Steve Loomis says Jackson is innocent until proven guilty.
