Rightfully so. Spitting on someone is the most disrespectful thing you could do. Not to mention very risky. What of the man has hiv?

Yes very gross! He would have gotten the same charge even if he would have poked his finger into the officer, any contact in an aggressive manner you get the same charge.

So then the CDC is wrong????

Can HIV be transmitted by being spit on by an HIV infected person?

No. In some persons living with HIV, the virus has been detected in saliva, but in extremely low quantities. Contact with saliva alone has never been shown to result in transmission of HIV, and there is no documented case of transmission from an HIV-infected person spitting on another person.
