A Jamestown man was jailed Saturday morning on numerous charges, including drunken driving and resisting arrest, following a crash in Lake View Cemetery.

Christian T. Powell, 20, was apprehended shortly after police were summoned about 5 a.m. to North Main Street and Marvin Parkway for a reported motor vehicle crash. Witnesses told police a 2006 Toyota allegedly driven by Powell had been traveling southbound on North Main Street when the vehicle left its lane and crashed through a street sign and a metal fence surrounding the cemetery.

The vehicle came to rest in between several trees in the cemetery, Jamestown police reported.
