A boy who claimed to have coronavirus and threatened to spit two policemen was jailed

A boy who claimed to have coronavirus and threatened to spit two officers was jailed.

Police chiefs say it should serve as a warning that this type of behavior would not be tolerated as the country faces the pandemic.

Shaun Sleigh, 31, was arrested after agents were called to his Hilltop Court apartment in Walkden last Friday.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said he was called for criminal damage.

Sled was arrested, however, in the process he assaulted an official woman.

He then said he had COVID-19 and threatened to spit out the officer and his colleagues.

He had to be put on a spit guard before he was taken into custody.

He was charged with three charges of assaulting an emergency officer and pleaded guilty to the Manchester court on Saturday.

He was jailed for eight months and ordered to pay compensation.

Speaking later about Chief Inspector Roger Pegram of GMP’s Salford division, he said: “The sled’s behavior towards these officers has been absolutely shameful, especially considering the country’s continued response to COVID-19.

“My officers were just doing their job – to keep Greater Manchester to the best of its ability.

“No public official should ever be confronted with violence, especially not when he is trying to protect communities.

“I hope this result serves as a warning that neither GMP nor the judicial system will tolerate this type of behavior

“Anyone found guilty could receive a prison sentence.”
