The subject kicked at officers while they attempted to take the subject into custody for the warrants. Once placed under arrest, the subject begins to make threats towards the officers to physically harm and spit on them. Based on the subject's threats, a spit hood is applied to protect the officers from saliva being discharged at them. The subject was taken to the hospital for medical clearance and transported to the Dane County Jail for the outstanding warrants and tentatively referred charges of resisting, threats to law enforcement, felony bail jumping, and misdemeanor bail jumping.
