The driver, who is a Sierra Madre resident, "delayed or obstructed" officer duties, according to Watch Commander Sgt. Joe Ortiz. So, the driver was placed under arrest, and allegedly bit one of the police officers on his arm during the process.

The officer was treated for the bite, said Ortiz.

The driver was transported to and then Pasadena Police Department for booking.
