Police: Suspect attacked officer after he offered fist bump instead of handshake

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - A Sioux Falls man was arrested after he allegedly bit an officer after the officer offered a fist bump instead of a handshake, authorities say.

Twenty-five-year-old Jordan Michael Glover was arrested Wednesday morning.

According to Captain Loren McManus, officers responded to a report of a drunk man roaming the hallways of an apartment on the 600 block of East Rice Street at 1:35 a.m. When they arrived, they found Glover and engaged in a conversation with him.

Officers walked Glover back to his apartment. Glover turned and wanted a handshake from the officers, but according to McManus, officers do not shake hands for safety reasons. An officer offered a fist bump instead.

McManus said this caused Glover to attack the officer. Police were able to arrest Glover following an altercation. One officer was bit during the assault.

Glover faces several charges, including resisting arrest and simple assault on a law enforcement officer.
