State police at Frackville said Douglas Downey, 40, of Pottsville, violated the order by repeatedly attempting to contact a 43-year-old New Philadelphia woman about 12:40 a.m.

He was taken into custody and arraigned before duty District Judge Anthony Kilker, of Shenandoah, and committed to the county prison in Pottsville after failing to post 10 percent of $25,000 bail.
