HICKORY Twp., Pa. -  Pennsylvania State Police have arrested a man after he reportedly pulled a gun on officers. 

Paramedics arrived at the scene of a car accident shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Saturday where 25-year-old Jed Frazier, of Corpus Christi, Texas had driven a truck off of the road and into a ditch. 

Police say when they approached Frazier's vehicle it appeared he was going in and out of consciousness and that he refused to acknowledge requests to unlock the vehicle doors. 

When officers attempted to gain entry into the vehicle Frazier allegedly pulled a small caliber hand gun from his coat pocket and pointed it at police. 

Officers and medics took shelter and continued to make contact with Frazier. 

Shortly before 3 a.m. Police say they broke the windows in the truck and extricated Frazier. 

Frazier was treated for minor injuries before being taken to the Lawrence County Jail. 

Officers tell 21 News Frazier was arraigned early this morning and is being held on a $10,000 for charges of aggravated assault, carrying firearms without a license, driving while intoxicated, simple assault, reckless endangering, and resisting arrest. 

No other drivers were injured in the incident.
