    (Providence-AP) -- A man has been arrested for biting a
    Providence firefighter.
    Twenty-eight-year-old Carlos Ortega has been charged with

    Providence police say they reported to a home on Atlantic Avenue

    and threw a punch at one firefighter's head.
    And as police tried to handcuff him, he bit a fire captain on
    the right arm, breaking his skin.
    Police say Ortega tried to reach for a machete. But Ortega's

    I just heard that the firefighter that was bitten is scheduled to go to surgery to repair the damage that was done to his bicep. Apparently this jacka** did more than break the skin.
