NEW CASTLE — A city man stopped while riding an unregistered ATV was jailed after showing alleged drug-related impairment.

Timothy Mark Clements Jr., 22, of 1806 Hamilton St., was charged with theft, receiving stolen property, driving under the influence and traffic offenses including failure to provide proof of insurance, failure to operate head lamps during hours of darkness, driving an unregistered vehicle, driving while operating privileges are suspended and driving an ATV on a highway.

He was arraigned before district Judge Scott McGrath and lodged in the Lawrence County jail in lieu of $25,000 bond.

According to state police, Clements went to a house on Marr Road, Edinburg, at 4:15 a.m. Monday and removed a 2012 Polaris 500 Sportsman, valued at $6,000. Police said he drove a mile and a half on Marr Road before he was taken into custody by Neshannock Township police.

Officers said Clements was taken to the state police station where he “showed numerous signs of drug-related impairment.”

Officers said Clements failed standard field tests, then refused three times to take a blood test.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
