Anthony Crespin Spit in a Cop Car So Much That It Was Out Of Commission for Multiple Days

Anthony Crespin has a lot of saliva.
How much saliva do you have to unleash inside a cop car to make that car unusable for multiple days?

That's probably a question for 42-year-old Gilbert resident Anthony Crespin, who did exactly that over the weekend.

According to a brief from Gilbert police, the cops were called to Crespin's place for allegedly assaulting his wife Friday evening.

After being arrested, Crespin chatted with police about a murder/suicide, and said multiple times that he would not allow his wife to live any longer once he got out of jail, according to police.

While Crespin was being taken to jail, he kept spitting at the officer, so when he finally made it to jail, he was placed in a restraint chair with a spit-shield.

According to Gilbert police, "The police vehicle was downed for service until Monday when service master could respond to clean up the saliva from the passenger seat and dash."

We have a call out to Gilbert police to find out exactly -- or approximately -- how much saliva we're talking about here, so we'll update you on that.

In the meantime, here's a spit-related Seinfeld clip:

True confession: when the narcs busted me for hash at age 18 I was so scared I lost bladder control in the unmarked vehicle. I bet that car was fragrant for a long time. People could probably smell him coming thereafter.


Jeez -- What happens if an suspect has eaten a bunch of you know Beans --- and has a gas problem in Mr. Officer's car. Do they call in the bomb squad!

i think it has more to do with they thought he might have some disease...hence the need for clean but really, is the cop incapable of grabbing some disinfectant and wiping it down himself?!? lol what would that take, 5 mins, maybe 10? just saying


 @WallyFlatulence does not possibly contaminate others as saliva might. While flatulence might smell bad for a period of time, it's not necessarily fatal, as evidenced by those who have survived trips to the 19th floor offices of the Wells Fargo building in Phoenix.



 @david_saint01OSHA likely requires complete professional sterilization of the affected area. No harm in being 'too' careful by having it done correctly.
