A judge orders a grand jury investigation of a man who allegedly bit a bus driver, then spat his own blood at police officers.

 The Sun Herald reports that Justice Court Judge Bruce Strong also kept bond for 37-year-old John Tad Hinton Jr. at $500,000.

When Hinton was arrested June 4th at the Greyhound Bus Station, Hinton allegedly told police he had hepatitis C, which can be transmitted through blood.Harrison County prosecuting attorney Herman Cox told the judge that blood tests showed that is true.

He said the judge ordered authorities to call him before releasing Hinton, if he is able to make bond.

Hinton had just been released from prison when Gulfport police arrested him at the bus station on one count of felony malicious mischief and three of exposing someone to Hepatitis C.
