A Spartanburg man is facing assault charges after officers said he spit at one of their own.

Spartanburg public safety officers said it started when they were called out to Farley Street late Saturday night after reports of a fight.

Officers arrived on scene as the fight broke up, but they said they came across Patrick Thomas, 51. Thomas, according to the report from Spartanburg Public Safety, was highly intoxicated and became combative with officers after he was asked to leave.

Thomas was handcuffed and placed into the back of an officer's vehicle, where reports said he spit on an officer's face through the cage screen.

Thomas faces charges of public disorderly conduct and prisoner throwing bodily fluid.
