SOUTH BEND TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — Police say a woman has been charged in connection to a shooting and alleged drunk driving incident in Armstrong County.
It happened just after 9:30 p.m. Saturday in South Bend Township.
Forty-three-year-old Barbara Janine Crissman, of Shelocta, Pa., was allegedly firing a handgun at other family members at a home on Hemlock Road near West Lebanon Road.

When troopers apprehended Crissman, they noticed the smell of alcohol and saw an open container of alcohol in the vehicle.
Crissman refused a blood draw.
She is facing multiple charges.
