A Burnsville man is facing felony charges for allegedly coughing on a Blue Earth county jail staffer. Blue Earth County court records say 30-year-old Jay Winger was charged with fourth-degree intentionally transferring bodily fluids on a correctional officer and interference with a peace officer. Authorities say Winger became belligerent at officers’ attempts to take him to Detox from a sober house last Friday and was taken to jail. The court records say Winger intentionally coughed on jail staffers as they tried to remove him from the police vehicle. Police say Winger would not tell authorities if he had any COVID-19 symptoms.
