A man who coughed at a police officer and claimed to have coronavirus has been jailed for 18 weeks.
Thomas Butler, 27, was arrested on 29 March following a theft he carried out at a 77-year-old woman's home in January last year.
Butler, of Mollington in Oxfordshire, admitted a count of assaulting an emergency worker and a count of theft from a dwelling.
Thames Valley Police said "showed the severity of what Butler did".
"Butler carried out this assault on Saturday and by Friday he has started serving a prison sentence," PC Reece Millar said.
"I am very pleased to get such swift justice at this time and I am very glad he has been given a custodial sentence."
Henry Butler, 27 and of no fixed abode, was given a 24-week sentence, suspended for two years, for fraud by false representation on 29 January at Oxford Magistrates' Court.
