A Union City man, who was being transported to jail on a previous charge, now has two additional charges.
Eric Lynn Choate, 36, of 710 High St., was arrested on Tuesday on possession of Schedule II cocaine and introduction of contraband in a penal institution. According to a report at the Union City Police Department, Choate had been notified several times he could be charged with the latter if he did not disclose any drugs in his possession prior to booking.
During booking, a folder picture was found in his pocket which contained what field-tested to be cocaine.
