Felony Assault on a Police Officer by Coughing

BATESVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — A woman suspected of shoplifting from the Batesville Walmart store Sunday night reportedly coughed on a police officer after claiming she had the coronavirus. When confronted the woman became combative, said she had the virus and intentionally coughed in the officer’s face. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital for testing but wasn’t showing any symptoms, eventually leaving the hospital against the healthcare workers’ advice. District Attorney John Champion says charges are coming and will be considered a felony.
