Dramatic video shows the moment an off-duty police officer put the bite on would-be armed crooks while in the middle of a dental checkup.

The 46-year-old cop, a member of Brazil’s Federal District Military Police, is seen getting up from the chair with his hands up and going down to the ground in the city of Ceilandia.
