MAUSTON, Wis. (AP) - Mauston police are recommending charges of battery and substantial bodily harm against a man accused of spitting and spattering blood on officers.

Authorities say officers responded to a medical call about 9 p.m. Sunday and learned a 37-year-old man had been involved in an altercation with his girlfriend. She picked up a knife. He grabbed it away from her and sustained cuts to his hand.

WISC-TV (https://bit.ly/1BUBlQA ) reports police say the man flicked blood on the Mauston officer who responded and later spat at a deputy or officer in the Juneau County Jail.
