Whoa. I don't even know were to put this. Should this be here, or in funny stuff? I understand the reason about transmitting a disease, but to bad they don't say were the spit was at. If it was on his shoe or something, theres no way you can get a disease from that. (Well diseases that can be passed by spit.) This guy was already in deep shit for beating his wife, but damn, a life sentence?
John Marquez, 36, received a life sentence after spitting on a policeman during his arrest for allegedly beating his wife. Marquez from Sapulpa, Oklahoma received such a severe punishment because of the risk of transmitting a potentially deadly disease. Marquez, who was drunk at the time, also bit the policeman when he tried to prevent him from spitting again. Both men tested negative for any communicable diseases.
