Pennsylvania Police Chief Faces DUI Charge

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Authorities say a police chief in Pennsylvania has been charged with driving under the influence.

Police say 59-year-old Harrisburg resident Richard L. Pickles was charged Thursday. Investigators say he was pulled over by Susquehanna Township police in June after he failed to come to a complete stop at a stop sign.

Authorities say he had a blood alcohol content of 0.082 percent, just over the legal limit.

Pickles is chief of police in Penn Township, Perry County. Messages left with Pickles and at the police department weren't immediately returned.
