ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County police say a man has been arrested after he attempted to steal a bag of chicken wings from a City Place Mall restaurant and then bit a security guard who confronted him.

Police say that a security guard was on patrol Monday night when he saw a man inside the then closed Brass Hen restaurant. Police say the man attempted to flee with a bag of chicken wings and bit the guard on the arm.
