Wanted man apprehended in Pleasant Hills
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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
