AMBRIDGE, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania man is jailed on drug charges because police say something other than a confession came out of his mouth when he was hit with a stun gun.

The Beaver County Times reports Tuesday that 56-year-old Frank Lee Turner was mumbling when Ambridge police stopped a car in which he was a passenger on Feb. 5.

Police say Turner was mumbling before he struggled with police and was hit with the stun gun - only to have 23 individually wrapped pieces of crack cocaine fall out of his mouth.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Turner, who faces a preliminary hearing on drug possession, resisting arrest and other charges.

Turner remained in the county jail Tuesday, unable to post bond.
