HIV positive protege of boxer Dicky Ecklund in court for spitting on officer

Giuffrida is HIV positive and was indicted by a Belknap County grand jury for one count of simple assault with an enhanced penalty because he knew he was allegedly spitting on an officer who was acting in the line of duty. The 2010 movie "The Fighter" was based on the life of Giuffrida's friend Dicky Eklund, also of Lowell. Eklund and Giuffrida were also the subject of an HBO documentary "High on Crack Street: Lost Lives in Lowell."
