Police say they arrested a Pittsburgh-area man twice within three hours on a charge of driving under the influence of prescription drugs.

Moon Township police say they first pulled over 26-year-old David Craig about 8:30 p.m. Friday. They say he had muscle relaxers and another type of pills used to help people withdraw from opiates in his car after he failed a field sobriety test.

Police say they dropped Craig at his mother's house telling him DUI charges would be mailed to him. About 11:15 p.m, police say Craig came to the police station seeking medication seized from his car. Police say Craig told them he got a ride to the police station, but they pulled Craig over when they saw him try to drive away.

Craig didn't immediately return a message left with his mother Wednesday.
