April 26, 2013
CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis man is facing charges for potentially exposing police officers to the virus that causes AIDS.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/14lGRx6 ) reports that 42-year-old David Williamson is charged with exposing another person to HIV infection for an incident that happened last May in St. Louis County.
Prosecutors say a Clayton officer responded to a report of a possible drunk-driving suspect slumped behind the wheel of a car. Authorities say Williamson refused to get out.
Williamson struggled with two officers, causing cuts to their skin and his. Williamson was taken to a hospital and told a doctor he was HIV-positive.
Clayton police declined to comment on the condition of the officers but both remain on duty.
Williamson is jailed on $25,000 bond.
