CAMDEN, NJ — A 31-year-old Camden man was charged Monday after allegedly making claims he had COVID-19 and spitting on three police officers, following his arrest for a domestic incident.
Anthony McKee was charged with two counts of terroristic threats during an emergency (second degree), two counts of throwing bodily fluid at an officer (fourth degree), criminal mischief (fourth degree), disorderly conduct, and two violations of the emergency orders.
"While McKee was seated in the rear of a marked police vehicle and officers were attempting to speak to him through an open window, McKee allegedly spat on two officers and the vehicle," state officials said in a roundup of charges. "He allegedly stated that he had the coronavirus and that the officers were going to get it."
After McKee was sent to Cooper Hospital for testing, he reportedly spit on another officer.
