READINGTON, N.J., Oct. 16 (UPI) -- A New Jersey man is facing charges for allegedly wiping "between his butt cheeks" with a police summons before throwing it at an officer.

The indictment charging Joseph Greenwood, 45, with a fourth-degree charge of throwing bodily fluids alleges he was issued the summons by Lt. John Insabella of the Readington Police Department on a municipal court charge of threatening to assault another person.

The indictment accuses Greenwood of acting "by taking the summons complaint issued to him upon his release from police custody, placing it between his butt cheeks, wiping the paper in an upward and downward motion and throwing it in the direction of the officer."

Greenwood "did purposely subject [Insabella] of the Readington Township Police Department to contact with a bodily fluid while the officer was in uniform and acting in the performance of his duties."

The indictment states the incident took place June 2.

Greenwood is also facing pending charges of disorderly conduct and making threats to kill another person in connection with a Sept. 18 incident.
