The police decided to intervene in as the row escalated, not least because both partners were not wearing face masks. The woman continued to behave aggresively and turned on police as they tried to detain her. She bit a policewoman in her lower arm.
Once at the police station she started coughing deliberately in her cell and said that she was doing so in order to infect it with the novel coronavirus.
The woman was given a suspended sentence, but also ordered to pay 1,200 euro in damages to the policewoman she bit.
