A 42-year-old Lewes man was charged with his fifth DUI after police say he was driving erratically along Route 1.
Donald C. Kilgore Jr. was driving a blue Ford Ranger southbound on Route 1 at 11:18 a.m. Feb. 11, said Master Cpl. Gary Fournier of the Delaware State Police.
A trooper tried to stop him near Minos Conaway Road, but Kilgore continued driving at a high rate of speed and almost ran into another trooper who had activated emergency lights in a crossover, Fournier said.
Kilgore continued southbound over the Nassau Bridge and stopped north of Five Points on Route 1, Fournier said.
Police could smell alcohol when they apprehended Kilgore, who was previously arrested for DUI in 1997, twice in 1998 and 2007.
He was charged with fifth-offense driving under the influence of alcohol, disregarding a police officer signal, reckless driving, failure to have insurance in possession and traffic offenses.
He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $10,405 cash bond.
