And finally… cheesed off

An angry man smacked a police officer with an unexpected weapon – a block of cheese – in an incident that police say proves “we can never let our guard down”.

Police responding to a reported disturbance in St. John’s, capital of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, found a “very irate male” armed with the dairy product, The Canadian Press reports.

The officer who took the full force of the lactic assault was apparently unharmed and did not require medical attention.

Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said it is not sure what kind of cheese was involved.

The amateur cheesemonger was arrested and charged with assault, assaulting a police officer and breach of probation.
