HIV Positive Patient Lands in Court for Spitting on Nurse Treating Him
Date Posted: 19/Jul/2018
He spit on her and said “taste the last kiss of death,”
 
An Aliceville man who police say is HIV positive is charged with felony assault after spitting on a nurse at Northport Medical Center.
 
Montrel Dewaun Minor, 28, spat on the RN while he was being treated in the hospital’s emergency room last month, telling her to “taste the last kiss of death,” according to court records.
 
According to the Centers for Disease Control, HIV is not transmittable through saliva.
 
The incident occurred June 11 at 6 p.m., according to the report filed by Northport Police. The report doesn’t specify why Minor was being treated at the hospital.
 
Minor “became belligerent and combative, and had to be physically restrained in order to receive the treatment,” a NPD officer wrote in the report. After he was restrained, he was able to raise himself on the gurney and spit on the nurse, according to the officer. Minor’s saliva came in contact with her mouth, nose and face, according to the report.
