Woman spits on NSW Police Officer


A woman has allegedly repeatedly coughed and spat on a police officer in Sydney’s south-west amid the coronavirus pandemic.She allegedly failed to stop for police in Greenacre on Friday afternoon and accelerated to a speed believed to be above 120km/h.She was later approached by police and arrested after being caught in heavy traffic on Roberts Road but allegedly refused to get out of the vehicle.As she was being physically removed and handcuffed, the 25-year-old allegedly coughed and spat on the police officer and said she was travelling for Covid-19 testing.She has since been charged with a number of serious driving offences and assaulting a police officer on duty. She was refused bail to appear at Parramatta local court on Saturday.“Police will not tolerate being spat at in any climate, let alone the one we’re facing right now. It’s as simple as that,” the NSW police assistant commissioner, Michael Corboy, said.She was not showing any respiratory symptoms, police said, but the officer would nevertheless undergo Covid-19 testing.
