Man Assaults Cop With Beer Can

On May 7, at 1:00 PM, Peter J. Land, 43, of Portland, was drinking a beer and playing a guitar at Oxford and Preble Streets. Officer Eric Libby informed him that drinking in public was against the law, and Land said “Go f--- yourself,” and took another sip from the can.

When Libby went to place Land under arrest, he was hit in the face with the beer can. Libby, who lost a molar, said “I felt a crack inside my mouth and I began spitting out teeth.”

Land was arrested for public drinking and assault on a police officer, which is a felony charge.
