VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — A pair of Vancouver police officers were spat on by a man Friday while giving him a bylaw infraction ticket.

Around 11:30 p.m. along Granville Street, officers were called to deal with a man regarding a bylaw infraction.

“While dealing with the male he spat in the face of one officer and spat on the feet of a second officer,” Sergeant Aaron Roed says in a release.

This bylaw infraction got upgraded from a ticket to two counts of assaulting a police officer and two counts of uttering threats.

The man in question was taken to jail where he remains in custody.

“The two officers were able to decontaminate and appear to have no physical injuries at this time.”
