WOMAN CLAIMING TO HAVE COVID-19 COUGHS AND SPITS AT POLICE

A Central Coast woman has been charged, accused of coughing and spitting at police – while claiming to have coronavirus.

The 31-year-old allegedly took off on foot, after her vehicle was stopped at Anzac Parade at Wyong around 8:20 last night.

Police say they restrained her, after a sickening struggle.

The 31-year-old has been charged with a string of offences, including police assault and intimidation.

Officers also allege she had capsicum spray in her car.

She has been bailed to front Wyong Local Court in April.
