NORTHPORT, Ala. (WIAT) — A man in Northport is charged with assault with bodily fluid after spitting on a nurse.

On June 11, Northport DCH emergency department nurse Lisa Nichols came into contact with HIV patient Montrel Dewaun Minor’s saliva. 

During treatment, Minor became belligerent and spat on Nichols’s face.”Taste the last kiss of death,” Minor said after he spit. 

Nichols said that his saliva touched her mouth, nose and face. She is aware of Minor’s HIV positive condition and performed decontamination procedures.

So far, Nichols has tested negative for the disease but she must retest in six months for conclusive results.
