NORTHPORT POLICE ARREST HIV-POSITIVE MAN FOR SPITTING ON NURSE

Northport Police have arrested a man they say is HIV positive after he was accused of spitting on a nurse with the intent of infecting her.

It happened around 6 p.m. June 11 in the emergency room at Northport Medical Center.

Police said Montel Dewaun Minor, 28, of Aliceville spat on a registered nurse and told her to “taste the last kiss of death.” At the time, Minor was being restrained on a gurney, and Northport Police did not reveal why he was there.

Minor was charged Tuesday for assault with a bodily fluid and was placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $10,000 bond. The nurse who was assaulted has thus far tested negative for HIV, but will need to be retested in several more months.
