HIV Positive Patient Lands in Court for Spitting on Nurse Treating Him
NORTHPORT, Ala. — An HIV-positive Alabama man has been charged with assault with bodily fluids in a bizarre attack on hospital nurse, police officers confirm.
Northport Police officers said X, 28, assaulted a Northport DCH nurse in the emergency room with what he called the “last kiss of death.”
“Because he had HIV… it made it a felony charge,” Northport Assistant Chief Keith Carpenter said.
Carpenter said X could face up to ten years in prison. Police didn’t know the suspect’s motives or if he had done something similar before.
