Woman who bit, stabbed cop gets year in prison

A WOMAN has been sentenced to a year in prison for attacking a police officer who tried to shut down her illegal waste oil recycling business, Jiading District prosecutor’s office said yesterday.

The court heard the woman, surnamed Cai, bit the officer and cut him with a knife at her workshop in Nanxiang Town, Jiading District.

Last July, police received a report that the workshop was being used to process waste oil from leftovers. When officers visited the shop they found Cai and her husband working over a pot of boiling oil and ordered them to stop. As one officer approached Cai, she bit him and slashed at him with a knife.

Cai denied the attack, saying the officer cut himself on the knife when he lunged at her.

Producing oil from waste is an offense in Shanghai, but the court did not say if the couple would face any charges.
