MUNICH, Germany, Dec. 11 (UPI) -- A German pool complex said a drunken guest biting police officers was the last straw leading to a three-drink limit for visitors.

The Erding Thermal baths near Munich, which features a bar in a warm water pool, said it has had problems with drunken guests for years, but the last straw was a 35-year-old Austrian man who was naked and causing a disturbance in one of the saunas, The Local.de reported Tuesday.

The complex said the man pushed a security guard into a pool and pulled out a chunk of the other man's hair. Police arrived and the man bit a female officer in the thigh and a male officer in the arm. Police said the man injured a third officer's shoulder.

Officials at the resort said the incident has resulted in the imposition of a three-drink limit for guests.

"This was the final straw," said Jorg Wund, manager if the Erding Thermal Baths. "Self control does not work."
