West Shore Regional Police said Vincent Nichols, 36, was trespassing on a property in the 800 block of North Front Street in Wormleysburg and appeared to be intoxicated.

When police arrived on the scene, Nichols ran and jumped into the river. Multiple rescue units were dispatched to pull him out.

Nichols was then taken into custody.
