A MAN is due to appear in court after allegedly running around Erskine streets naked and biting a police officer's arm. 

Officers were called to reports of a man running around Barrholm Drive with no clothes on at around 6.10am on Saturday.

When they arrived, police chased the man down but, when they went to arrest him, he managed to bite the arm of a female officer through her fleece.

The officer was sent to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley to receive preventative injections and has been put on a course of antibiotics.

The man, aged 25, is due to appear in court today.
