July 23, 2014

A Georgetown man faces his fourth DUI offense after police say he led them on a chase through Georgetown.

Roy D. McBroom, 50, was driving his Dodge truck near the Georgetown Walmart at 8:35 p.m. July 22 when someone called 911 about a possible drunk driver, said Lt. Lawrence A. Grose of the Georgetown Police Department.

Police observed McBroom crossing the road lines several times as he drove southbound on Route 113 near Shortly Road, Grose said.

McBroom did not stop when police activated their lights; he eventually pulled into a driveway off Governor Stockley Road, Grose said.

McBroom's blood alcohol content was 0.168 percent, Grose said, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08. Police charged McBroom with felony DUI – his fourth offense. He also was charged with disregarding a police officer's signal and failing to remain within a single lane. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $4,600 secured bond, pending a future court date.
