Rick Anderson Bell was charged with throwing of bodily fluids by Union Police on Sunday, according to an arrest warrant.
An officer was called to Lee Street around 3:15 a.m. Sunday because of a reported collision. The incident report states Bell was at the scene and smelled of alcohol, then admitted to have been drinking when questioned.
