A Pittsburgh man wanted by Upper St. Clair police was apprehended in Pleasant Hills after a foot chase on Thursday.

Pleasant Hills police Chief Edward Cunningham said police initiated a traffic stop around noon along Route 51 near Denny's for a blue Subaru Forester with expired inspection and emissions stickers.

The passenger, later identified as 34-year-old Anthony J. Neil, attempted to flee on foot. Officers chased the man along Route 51 where he was apprehended near Red Lobster.

Cunningham said there was an active arrest warrant for Neil, and he will be charged with resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance and disorderly conduct in connection with the traffic stop.

Neil was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Pat Capolupo.

Police said the driver of the vehicle took off as officers were chasing Neil.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact Pleasant Hills police at 412-655-5045.
