Man charged with exposing police to Hep-C
A 32-year-old local man has been charged with exposing officers to Hepatitis C after he allegedly spat on a sheriff’s detective and threw a drink in a correctional officer’s face. Brandon Lynn Tallent, who has reportedly told authorities that he is Hep-C positive, was charged with driving under the influence; two counts of resisting stop, frisk, halt, arrest; two counts of criminal exposure of another to HBV; and assault after an incident following an arrest for DUI on Jan. 31. Tallent was also cited for failing to give immediate notice of an accident, driving on highways laned for travel, violation of financial responsibility, and violation of implied consent.
