Man who bit cop laughs his way out of court without jail time
A man found guilty of biting a police officer has laughed as he walked out of court without serving a single day behind bars.
Magistrate Elizabeth Ellis conceded the attack “beggars belief”, according to Nine News reporter Connor McGoverne.
And yet, 21-year-old Jordan Khattar was only slapped with a good behaviour bond for biting the officer while being kicked out of a Bathurst pub.

The police union is condemning the court’s decision.
NSW Police Association Secretary Pat Gooley tells Ray Hadley the ruling is a kick in the teeth of the law.
“A middle-of-the-road offender that commits a middle-of-the-road actual bodily harm to a police officer should go to jail for a minimum of three years.
“That’s what the law says. Three years full-time custody.
“This bloke’s not a middle-of-the-road offender. The video shows that.”
