Man to Pa. cops: ‘Alcohol, Crown Royal’

UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in southwestern Pennsylvania say they charged two men with public drunkenness after they knocked on a police station door.

A Uniontown police report says 30-year-old Alan Scritchfield, of Uniontown, and 30-year-old Peter Dominick, of McClellandtown, came to the police station about 9 p.m. Sunday.

A police sergeant says Dominick was slurring his words while Scritchfield was drinking out of a plastic cup. Asked what was in it, Scritchfield allegedly told police, "alcohol, Crown Royal" before saying he was drunk.

Scritchfield's home phone is disconnected. The Associated Press could not immediately locate a listed number for Dominick.

Police say they subdued Dominick with a stun gun when he realized he was being arrested and tried to run away.
