From staff reports

A Pleasantville man was arrested for DUI at 5:45 a.m. Sunday on Grandview Road in Cornplanter Township.

Franklin state police said, Zachery D. Plemmons was driving a 2002 Dodge Dakota when he crashed at the intersection of Grandview Road and Walnut Bend Road.

Police said the truck caught fire and Cornplanter Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched.

The truck was completely destroyed, but the fire department reported that there was nobody around the vehicle when they arrived, police said.

Police said, a resident contacted Venango County 911 reporting that Plemmons had knocked on his door asking to use his phone to call for a ride, while also appearing to be under the influence of something.

Police said, Plemmons fell asleep while sitting in a folding chair behind the resident’s vehicle.

Plemmons was taken into custody for DUI, and he was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, registration violations, reckless driving and careless driving, police said.

Police discovered, while Plemmons was in custody, that he was under the supervision of Crawford County Court for a criminal case.

Plemmons was arraigned by District Judge Andrew Fish and housed in Venango County Jail under $25,000 bond.

Pennsylvania State Board of Probation and Parole issued a detainer on Plemmons because he was already out on probation pending trail for a previous DUI arrest and violated the conditions, police said.
