NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A 29-year-old man has been arrested on a felony charge more than four years after he’s accused of exposing a woman to HIV.
According to an arrest warrant, the woman became pregnant with Bryan Rivas-Vargas’ child in 2015. A few months later, police said the victim discovered a pill bottle and prescription bag for ATRIPLA, an HIV treatment, with Rivas-Vargas’ name on it.
The victim confronted the father of her child and told officers that he admitted he was HIV-positive and knew that prior to their relationship, but failed to disclose it to her.
Rivas-Vargas was booked into the Metro jail Monday morning on a charge of criminal exposure of another to HIV. While his bond on the charge was set at $7,500, court records showed he remained jailed Tuesday morning on an “immigration hold.”
