Someone needs to give the Oklahoma City Police Department a crash course on how HIV is spread.
Over the weekend, they arrested a man for “knowingly transferring HIV” after he allegedly spit on a woman during an argument.
The alleged “victim” told authorities that she and 32-year-old Apollo Gonzalez got into an argument on Saturday. During the squabble, Gonzaelz, who the woman claims was drunk, spit in her face.
“The [woman] said it is well-known that [Gonzalez] is HIV positive and [Gonzalez] admitted to me he had HIV,” the police report stated.
The cops arrested him at the scene for “knowingly transferring the HIV virus and assault and battery.”
For the record: Gonzalez did not “transfer” HIV virus. And he “acknowledged” he has HIV, he did not “admit” it.
Look it up, folks. According to AIDS.gov: “HIV is not spread through the air and it does not live long outside the human body.” In other words, The virus is not transmitted through saliva.
