The report said Suk allegedly refused to cooperate with police and began coughing and spitting toward officers, saying, "I hope you get corona."

Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal said they are cracking down on incidents like these across the state, and have announced enforcement actions that target price-gouging, consumer fraud violations and alcoholic beverage control violations.

"We're cracking down on those who jeopardize public health and undermine public safety," Grewal said in a release. "We have zero patience for those who spit on cops, gouge prices or try to exploit this pandemic for their personal gain."
