County Antrim man 'with Covid' spat on police officers

A CRUMLIN man 'with Covid' spat on police officers, a court has heard.

Paul Rock (21), of Pakenham Close, has admitted assaulting two police officers on July 25 this year.

Defence barrister Neil Moore told Antrim Magistrates Court, sitting in Ballymena, the defendant "spat on police officers during the Covid pandemic when Mr Rock actually had Covid."

No further details were given to the court and the case was adjourned to October 12 for a pre-sentence report.
