Police are looking for a man who fled from an officer by jumping into the Susquehanna River.

West Shore Regional police said 38-year-old Michael Lynn Rittle, of Fairview Township, was a passenger in a car stopped Monday night in Wormleysburg.

The driver of the car shows signs of intoxication and was arrested, and Rittle lied about his identity to the officer, police said.

While the officer was trying to confirm his identification, Rittle ran from the scene and eventually jumped into the river, police said.

A warrant has been obtained for his arrest.

Anyone with information concerning his whereabouts is asked to call West Shore Regional police at 717-238-9676.
