    Boston police say an officer was bitten in the leg Sunday while responding to a loud music complaint in the neighborhood of Dorchester.

    They arrested 25-year-old Lacorey Waiters and 27-year-old Travis White of Boston for failing to comply with orders. During booking, Waiters allegedly bit one of the officers in the right leg as they attempted to restrain him.

    Both men are being charged with assault and battery and disturbing the peace. Waiters will additionally be charged with assault and battery on a police officer.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
