Charlie Bell held after testing positive for alcohol

Posted: Updated:

(12/08/11) - Former Michigan State Spartan and Flint native Charlie Bell spent hours in custody Thursday after showing up to court legally drunk for a hearing on his drunken driving case.

Bell, now 32 and with the Golden State Warriors, was arrested in Flint Township Oct. 21 for drunken driving, driving on a suspended license and failing to stop at a stop sign.

Flint Township Police tell ABC12, an officer observed him at the intersection of Court and Ryan around 2:50 a.m. He did not stop at the stop sign, according to police.

That case was set to be resolved Thursday morning, in Genesee County's 67th District Court, until Bell blew a reported .09 during a pre-scheduled alcohol assessment.

The legal limit is .08

Bell was held, in a district court holding cell, on a bond violation until he sobered up.

He's expected back in court Friday morning.

His attorney Michael Manley tells ABC12, Bell takes full responsibility for what happened, adding there was a definite sanction for his actions.
