Texas police officer bitten by a drunk a quarter of a century ago facing dire effects of Hepatitis C


Little did small town Texas police officer, Truman Bradshaw think that 24 years after getting bit by a drunken man he would be dying of cirrhosis and Stage 4 liver cancer and seeking a liver transplant.

But that is exactly what has happened. As Bradshaw explains it, he saw a drunken man stumbling down the street and was concerned for his safety so he attempted to take the man, whose name he cannot even recall, home safely.

Instead a fight ensued which resulted in a bite on his right forearm. The drunk was then taken in for public intoxication. But that was the beginning of Bradshaw’s problems.
