A man who impersonated a dock worker, stole a motorcycle and bit the cop who arrested him two summers ago in Downtown San Francisco was convicted on three felony counts.

Casey Whitmore, 41, faces up to three years and eight months in prison, the San Francisco District Attorney's office said Friday.

Whitmore was accused of sneaking into the loading dock of One Maritime Plaza about 5 a.m. on July 15, 2021, where he tried to steal a motorcycle belonging to one of the employees.

When intercepted by security workers, he took an orange construction vest and foreman's hardhat and pretended to be an employee, prosecutors said.

Police were called to remove Whitmore, but he resisted arrest by thrashing on the ground and biting an officer in the leg, prosecutors said.

Whitmore is set to be sentenced on Feb. 1.
