EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - An Evansville woman is under arrest for spitting on a nurse at Deaconess Hospital.

Evansville Police say 49-year-old Katoya Gresham was a patient at Deaconess last year.

She was receiving medical treatment and that's why officials say she was not arrested immediately after the incident.

Gresham is now charged with battery by bodily waste and battering a health care employee.

She's being held on $1,000 cash bond.
