  • A 55-year-old Dagsboro man was arrested March 14 for his 12th offense DUI.
    According to the Delaware State Police, troopers responded to a report of a driver walking away from a single-vehicle crash around 7:25 p.m. on Nine Foot Road in Dagsboro. Police said they found a 1998 Ford Mustang driven off the road and the driver, James Fisher, was hiding behind nearby bushes. Police said Fisher was not injured in the crash. Police took Fisher into custody after it was determined he was under the influence of alcohol. A routine check of Fisher’s criminal history revealed he had 11 prior driving under the influence offenses. Also, his driver’s license was suspended and his vehicle was not properly registered. While detained, Fisher was uncooperative and refused to be photographed and fingerprinted.
    Fisher was charged with felony DUI, failure to comply with taking of photographs and fingerprints and numerous traffic offenses. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $21,650 cash bail.
