This Cop Died 7 Months After A Suspect Spat In Her Face. Then Police Revealed The Startling Cause
As a police officer, Arina Koltsova often dealt with unruly suspects. And so when one detainee spat in her face, she simply carried on as normal. Tragically, though, the policewoman wasn’t to know how that moment would lead to her untimely death just seven months later.
Koltsova lived in the capital city of Kiev in Ukraine, where she worked as a police officer. It was, moreover, a demanding job that often required Koltsova to detain suspects on the city streets.
One such incident occurred on New Years Day 2016. Koltsova and her partner, Officer Mikhail Kindrakevich, had been patrolling the streets when something caught their attention. They believed that a man nearby was breaking the law.
So the two cops made their way over to the suspect to arrest him. When the officers arrived at the scene, however, the man refused to give up without a fight. In fact, a violent struggle between Koltsova and the suspect soon ensued.
