A vile thug has been jailed after racially abusing and spitting at police officers while claiming to have coronavirus and tried to bite nurses trying to treat him in hospital.
Mark White subjected emergency workers to a tirade of physical and verbal abuse after being arrested in Northumberland.
The 36-year-old called officers horrific racist names, headbutted one of them and spat at two insisting he had Covid-19.
He was also disgusting with nurses who were attempting to treat him after he sustained an injury while being restrained by officers.
White, of Briarwood Cottages, Annitsford, North Tyneside, called one at the police station a "fat s**g" then when taken to hospital he tried to bite nurses' hands and threatened to headbutt one if they tried to help him.
Newcastle Crown Court heard how White, who has 106 previous convictions, has an "appalling" record for attacking police officers.
