A man who suffers from Hepatitis C spat in the face of a female police officer has been jailed for three months. Corey McMullan (26) of Bond's Hill in Derry admitted three charges of assaulting police, possessing an offensive weapon namely a plank of wood and disorderly behaviour on June 25. The court heard that police were called to Clooney Terrace after reports of a man waving a bat. When they arrived, they saw McMullan waving a three foot plank of wood, shouting obscenities and acting aggressively. They called on McMullan to drop the plank and he eventually did and was arrested. After being placed in a police vehicle he became aggressive towards a female officer sitting beside him and spat in her face. He told officers he had Hepatitis C. McMullan was sentenced to a total of three months in prison.
