A south-central Pennsylvania man has been jailed on charges he took his grandmother's car without her permission and then was stopped by police for driving it in the wrong direction down the road.

22-year-old Alex Walker, of North Middleton Township, faces a preliminary hearing Nov. 4 on charges of unauthorized use of a vehicle and driving without a license.

Township police say they found him driving the wrong way early Friday in a car he allegedly took about 5:45 p.m. Thursday.

Police say Walker is on probation for a past theft conviction.

He remained in the Cumberland County Jail on Monday.
