GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say a University of Northern Colorado student was arrested for trying to bite a Greeley police officer in the groin.

The Greeley Tribune reports 19-year-old James Adam Pike was arrested Oct. 5 on suspicion of one count of criminal attempt to commit second-degree assault.

Authorities say officers responded to a report of a man acting aggressively at a fraternity house in Greeley.

Police say Pike had taken three or four tabs of LSD and used marijuana when he removed his clothes and tried to fight fraternity members.

Police say the freshman lunged at an officer's groin after he was handcuffed.

Authorities say Pike was seen at a hospital and is free on bond.

The Associated Press could not find a phone number for Pike Monday.
