A Salt Lake police officer whose hands were bloodied during a fight must undergo AIDS testing.
Officer Shane Whiting was dispatched to a fight about 8 p.m. Sunday at 167 N. Redwood Road.Two men living together for five days had been drinking and fighting. One of the men had apparently struck his roommate over the head with a whiskey bottle, slashed at him with car keys and placed him in a cold shower fully clothed.
As Whiting was handcuffing the suspect, the officer got a large amount of blood on his hands, which had three open wounds on them.
Another police report stated that the two men involved in the fight were infected with the HIV virus.
