Man charged with spitting at nurse, public health official

A Stafford man was charged with two crimes after he allegedly spit at a nurse and a public health official in an incident earlier this month, the Genesee County Sheriff's Office announced Monday.

Jordin Michael Schultz, 22, was charged with third-degree menacing and second-degree reckless endangerment in connection with an April 2 incident.

According to a news release by the sheriff's office, Schultz spit at a public health official and nurse shortly after 5:30 p.m. April 2 at a residence on Main Road (Route 5) in Stafford, about 8 miles east of Batavia.

"The health department was going to do a test on someone at that residence, and that’s when the incident occurred," said Brian Frieday, Chief Deputy of the Road Patrol Division.

Frieday could not say what kind of test officials were attempting to administer.

"Mr. Schultz was not real cooperative," Frieday said. "He was asking some questions, and when he didn’t get the answers he wanted to hear, he ended up showing his displeasure and spitting towards one of the nurses that was there."

Frieday, who will have been with the Sheriff's office for 24 years next month, said he has not experienced a situation like this before.

"I have not seen something like this," he said. "We have had situations in our jail, or directed at our deputies once in a while, but this is the first situation that I am aware of where a health department official was spit at or involved bodily fluids or whatever."

Schultz is scheduled to appear in the Town of Stafford Court at 9 a.m. June 9.
