Man Sentenced For Spitting In Officer's Face, Saying He Had COVID

(Hillsboro, OR)  --  A man who spit in an officer's face after claiming to have COVID-19 is headed to jail.  The Washington County District Attorney's Office announced yesterday that a judge sentenced Miguel Hernandez-Cuesta on May 11th to six months in jail plus three years probation.  The judge also revoked his driver's license for life.  Court records say the incident happened last July, after Hernandez-Cuesta fell asleep in his car at the drive-thru of a Tualatin restaurant.  When police arrested him, he started coughing, said he had COVID-19, and then spit in an officer's face.  Hernandez-Cuesta pleaded guilty to assault, harassment and driving under the influence.
