Video of the week? How about current video of the year.
Trooper bitten after Jay Peak aprés mishap
It may have happened in Vermont, but the headline couldn't be more Jersey. Lo and behold it was Jersey that brought the ruckus north this week when a 22-year-old Jersey man bit a state trooper at Jay Peak Resort. The officer was responding to a report of an unruly, intoxicated man, but clearly didn't know what type of fire he was walking into. In addition to biting, the down the shore deviant kicked another cop on his way to the slammer. Something tells me this dude is going to miss the next powder day. Yikes, guy.
