Suspect Spits On Cops - Officer Passes Away (Photos)

A policewoman from the Ukraine died after contracting tuberculosis. She contracted the disease from a criminal who spat in her face when she arrested him.

Arina Koltsova, 35, arrested a suspect on New Year's Day. The disgusting thug spat in her face, but the officer did her job. She had no idea at the time that he was infected with TB, a potentially fatal bacterial infection.

After the encounter, Koltsova began to take ill. For a long time, she went untreated, assuming she had a less serious illness. It was only after she collapsed at work that she was diagnosed with the infectious lung disease.

"She had received treatment. She underwent chemotherapy, she was fed food through an IV drip and she had lost a lot of weight," wrote her partner on Facebook.

Chemo is often used to treat serious cases of TB, but unfortunately it has side effects that make people weaker and malnourished. Sadly, Koltsova passed away of her illness.

"This is an irreplaceable loss for the whole of Kiev police, fond memories of Arina will remain in our hearts forever," her fellow officers wrote on Facebook.

Police are considering whether or not they can press charges against the man who spat on her.
