Maine: Somali Man Spits on Police Officers During Arrest

So what else would you expect when the police catch you driving a stolen car and arrest you, afterall, its free-for-all time for Africans assaulting police officers.

But in the age of COVID, spitting in someone’s eye could be a deadly assault.

Maine man accused of spitting on police officers during arrest

PORTLAND (WGME) – A Portland man is accused of spitting on police officers while they tried to arrest him for allegedly driving a stolen vehicle.

On Saturday, South Portland police asked Portland officers to help find a vehicle that had been reported stolen in their city.

Mohamud Abdullahi. Almost every Somali in Maine is a refugee or a child of a refugee. Catholic Charities is the primary resettlement agency in that state.

Police say the vehicle was found driving on Franklin Street and was followed onto Pearl Street where it was stopped.

The occupants were detained, and the driver, identified as Mohamud Abdullahi, was handcuffed and placed in the back of a police car.

Police say after Abdullahi was told he was going to be arrested, he began kicking the cruiser door and window.

He was taken out of the cruiser, but as he was being placed in the arrest van, police say Abdullahi spit on four officers and continued to resist arrest.

Abdullahi was charged with four counts of assault and violation of conditions of release. He was also charged by the South Portland Police Department for crimes committed in their jurisdiction.

Two Portland police officers were treated at Mercy Hospital for exposure to bodily fluids because the suspect spit in their eyes, according to police.

The passenger in the vehicle was exhibiting coronavirus symptoms and is awaiting COVID-19 test results. She was not charged and was released at the scene.

Can we expect CAIR to come to his rescue (BLM right!)?

Portland police have their hands full.  Earlier this month a Somali man attempted an attack on a police parking garage, see here.
