Initially, Elizabethtown police made contact with Aumiller at a gas station, where officers said the man was intoxicated and had facial injuries.

EMS providers transported him to the hospital. Aumiller reportedly kept spitting at the EMS providers so they put him in a spit hood, which he kept trying to remove. Then he struck the EMT, police said.

Aumiller is being held on $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 21.
