Sarasota, FL - Police say a Michigan State University professor bit a police officer and was arrested for assault at a Florida airport.

John Douglas McCallie and his wife, Spartans women's basketball coach Joanne McCallie, arrived at the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport Wednesday afternoon.

A police report says McCallie argued with an airport police officer after one of the couple's bags did not arrive at the baggage claim.

The report says McCallie bit the officer on the hand during a struggle after the officer tried to take him into custody.

McCallie was charged with battery on a police officer and resisting arrest with violence.

He was jailed and released several hours later on a $2,700 bond. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
