Spitting your life away

Got a trackback ping from the blog of Michael Williams re spitting and DNA identification kits currently being handed out to Westminster Parking Enforcement Officers.

Now no one has yet been stupid enough to spit at me for issuing them with a parking ticket. I suppose, considering the cataclysmic IQ drops I have witnessed whilst doing this job, that it is only a matter of time before someone does. In this case, what is the legal position? Does this mean that someone has thrown away a sample of their body fluids, which can be freely entered into Police DNA records without any permissions being sought or obtained? Thinking about it, I suppose it would count as ‘forensic’ evidence and thus exempt.

Upon reflection, spitting at someone is highly offensive, but what sort of offence is it? Any of you legal types out there have an opinion you’d like to share with the rest of us?

Exasperated expatriate expostulations all the way from British Columbia, Canada. As if anyone really cared. Oh, I also watch Icelandic Volcanoes and seismic activity. Don't ask me why.
