Woman arrested for spitting in EMT’s face

The N.H. woman spit in the faces of both an EMT and police officer who responded to her home for a medical call

MERRIMACK, N.H. — A woman was arrested after spitting in the face of a EMT and police officer who responded to her home for a medical call.

Rob Zullo Rob Zullo Saturday, March 29, 2014 3:50:31 AM simple assault? if she did this to a cop they would throw the book at her, the charge is weak and embarrassing to the EMS profession
Paul Wiechec Paul Wiechec Saturday, March 29, 2014 7:18:03 AM Zullo - read closer n get a little thicker skin It says she spit on an EMT and police officer. That equals two people and she was charged with two counts of assault. So how it any different?
