Sacramento police said a bicyclist was arrested after he bit an officer and then physically assaulted another while in the hospital on Friday.

Officers said they stopped Rolf Staib, who was riding a bicycle, for a traffic violation on 9th and L streets around 11:30 a.m. He began to ride off, and the officer tried to physically detain him, and Staib bit down on the officer's hand and did not let go, causing both men to fall to the ground.

Staib continued to struggle with the officer, and eventually, other officers managed to get the suspect under control.
