New Jersey Woman Spits on, Kicks Volunteer EMS Worker: Police

A 26-year-old woman is accused of spitting in the face of a volunteer EMS worker who tried to help her with a cut. 

New Jersey State Police say Perryville troopers and Pattenburg Volunteer EMS responded to a home in Bloomsbury shortly before 1 a.m. July 4 to help Brittany Berger, who had sustained a laceration. 

As a volunteer EMS worker tried to help the 26-year-old Berger, she spit at him and kicked him, police said. 

The Greenwich Township woman was arrested on charges of aggravated assault and disorderly conduct. She's being held at the Hunterdon County Jail in lieu of bail. 

It wasn't immediately clear if Berger had an attorney.
