NESHANNOCK, Pa. (WKBN) – A New Castle man was jailed on several criminal charges, accused of driving drunk and failing to comply with officers.

Around 2:30 a.m. Thursday, Neshannock police were called to the area of Mitchell Road and I-376 for a report of an intoxicated man driving a gold Toyota. Officers found the Toyota on Old Pulaski at Chapin Road and attempted to pull the driver over, according to a news release.
