Chinese cop fires in the air as suspect bites piece of flesh from his leg (VIDEO)

In a moment of what could only be described as desperation, a police officer in China opens fire into the air as a suspect uses his teeth to tear a piece of flesh from the officer’s leg.

The clip, which is just over a minute long, shows a group of officers attempting to subdue the man, who was apparently stopped for some sort of traffic violation.

The gunshot did not even appear to phase the suspect, who may have watched “Day of the Dead” one too many times, but upset a baby instead, who could be heard crying in the background.

Meanwhile, witnesses are anxiously filming the fiasco, which landed on Live Leak Wednesday.

Officers finally got the carnivorous suspect away from the cop, and he’s left lying on the ground breathing heavily, with his pants covered in blood.
