GRAND ISLAND, Neb. -- A Grand Island police officer is undergoing a disease screening process after being assaulted with bodily fluid.
Police said two officers responded to 8th and Washington on Saturday for a combative man who was under the influence of drugs.
They said Nathan Wiebe was taken to CHI Health St. Francis, where they said he kicked both officers. Police said one received injuries to the stomach and hip.
Police said Wiebe then spit at an officer's mouth, causing the officer to begin a series of testing that can last several months.
Wiebe was charged with two counts of assault on a police officer, being under the influence of a controlled substance and assault on a public safety officer with bodily fluid.
