A New Jersey man George Falcone, 50, from Freehold, N.J. who allegedly coughed on a Wegmans employee and said he had coronavirus was charged Tuesday with a terroristic threat, among other charges, officials said.

Falcone was charged with terroristic threats, obstructing the administration of law or other governmental function and harassment after the incident occurred Sunday, New Jersey Attorney General said in a statement.

The Wegmans employee reportedly asked Falcone to step back after he was “standing too close to her” and an open display of prepared food.

Falcone allegedly leaned forward within three feet of her and purposefully coughed, while laughing and saying he was infected with the virus.
