A Bismarck man faces several criminal charges after allegedly spitting twice onto a paramedic.

Mandan Police responded after 5:30 p.m. Sunday for a welfare check on a man asleep or passed out in a yard on the 1600 block of Sixth Avenue Northwest, according to court documents. Kalief Raymond Hill, 34, of Bismarck, reportedly became verbally aggressive toward police.

He also refused verbal commands, the case's affidavit said, and took up "an aggressive fighting position" while yelling obscenities, saying, "Shoot me, shoot me."

Court documents say Hill spat forcefully through a spit hood, hitting the EMT twice on his face.

Hill's charges include felony contact by bodily fluids or excrement and misdemeanor counts of preventing arrest or discharge of other duties and physical obstruction of government function. His bond was set at $1,500. He is to have no contact with the paramedic as well.

Hill also faces unrelated felony and misdemeanor charges from May when he allegedly threatened a Dakota Access Pipeline security officer, slashed the man's tire and lit a fire on a pipeline roadway. His preliminary hearing in that case is set for Monday.
