It appears even the Top Cop isn't safe on the streets of his own city during Bike Week.
As Daytona Beach Police Chief Michael Chitwood walked down Main St. in his city during Bike Week on Saturday evening, a 5'9" tall man weighing about 190-pounds flagged down the Chief and asked if he could talk to him., according to an arrest affidavit from the Daytona Beach Police Department.
So the Chief stopped.
The man, Michael A. Dangelo, 43, told Chief Chitwood some chilling words: He allegedly said it was his "constitutional right to kill any cop that he though was bad."
As the Chief then turned around to walk away, Dangelo spit on the back of the Chief Chitwood's shirt, the affidavit stated.
The Chief then turned around to tell Dangelo he was under arrest and attempted to take the man into custody, pushing Dangelo against a wall while reaching for his hand. Delangelo bit the chief's hand, according to the report.
As the two men struggled, Chief Chitwood reportedly landed on the ground, hitting his head on a parked motorcycle, which caused a deep laceration.
Several witnesses then stepped forward to detain Dangelo until cops arrived to take him to the slammer.
Chief Chitwood suffered both a broken finger and hand, deep lacerations to one finger and a large cut to his forehead which required stitches, police said.
Dangelo was charged with Aggravated Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer; Resisting an Officer with Violence, Breach of Peach/Disorderly Conduct.
This arrest marks Dlango's sixth booking at Volusia County Jail.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
