William Augustus Bell wants back in the game. When Bell was acquitted last week of assault charges in connection with an on-field melee at a high school lacrosse game in the spring, the Mount Airy parent was hoping Carroll County school officials would lift a ban that prohibits him from attending extracurricular activities at any county school.
