Francis Woodruff, AKA "Woody" 51, 04/12/1958
http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...MPLATE=DEFAULTMERIDEN, Conn. (AP) -- An instructor at the Connecticut Police Academy has been charged with disorderly conduct after he allegedly responded literally to a co-worker's "bite me" remark. Francis Woodruff, a former Waterbury police captain, was arraigned Tuesday and released on a promise to appear in court.
He was accused of biting the arm of 42-year-old Rochelle Wyler, a license and applications analyst at the academy, on April 24. According to the arrest report, she was left with teeth marks and bruising on her left triceps.
Wyler filed a complaint April 28, alleging the 51-year-old Woodruff was agitating her by calling her a clerk. She said she responded with "bite me" - and he did. Woodruff, who also is a training co-ordinator with the Meriden Police, told authorities he was joking around.

Woodruff, also a retired Waterbury police captain, is not allowed to return to the police academy and has been placed on leave from his job at the Meriden Police Department, according to the warrant.
Wyler, 42, called state police April 28, four days after the incident. She said she was helping a Meriden police lieutenant make copies when Woodruff entered the room and started agitating her by calling her "clerk" and other names, the warrant says.
She said, "Whatever Woody, bite me," the warrant says.
The remark was meant to be sarcastic, but Woodruff grabbed her left arm, pulled her to him and bit her left triceps, the warrant says.
