A Tulsa man who is HIV positive was transferred from the hospital to jail after police say he bit a medical technician Friday night.

Darin Lee Bunch, 40, was booked on complaints of knowingly spreading AIDS and aggravated assault and battery on a health care worker.

Officers say Bunch was a patient at St. John Hospital when he bit a med tech at about 10:30 p.m.

"The technician was trying to have the suspect not pull his heart monitor out," the arresting officer said in his report. "When she reached over him to check the tube, the suspect learned forward and bit the tech on the right forearm."

The wound was deep and bleeding, the arrest report states.

Hospital security restrained Bunch and told him he may have spread AIDS. Bunch reportedly replied, "I don't give a s**t," the report states.

Bunch is also diagnosed with Hepatitis C, according to police.
