October 5, 2018

A Georgetown man faces his sixth driving under the influence offense, a felony, after a Rehoboth Beach traffic stop Oct. 3.

Shawn P. Dailey, 57, was driving a Geo Prism at 10:30 p.m. on Rehoboth Avenue when an officer performed a routine computer check of the vehicle’s registration and learned that Dailey, the registered owner, had a suspended driver’s license, said Lt. Jaime Riddle of the Rehoboth Beach Police Department. Riddle said the officer also observed that Dailey failed to properly signal a left turn from First Street onto the second block of Olive Avenue before stopping him. 

Upon contact, Riddle said, the officer noticed signs of intoxication. Dailey was administered a standardized field sobriety test and taken to the Rehoboth Beach Police Department for additional blood alcohol testing, Riddle said.  

Dailey was charged with felony sixth offense driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, driving while suspended or revoked and failure to signal not less than 300 feet before turning. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $10,600 secured bail.
