Rehoboth Beach woman faces fourth DUI

February 4, 2019

A Rehoboth Beach woman was charged Feb. 2 with her fourth driving under the influence after police stopped her on Norfolk Street.

Agnes M. Carroll, 52, was driving at 10 p.m. on Rehoboth Avenue when she failed to stop at a red light while turning onto southbound Second Street, said Lt. Jaime Riddle of the Rehoboth Beach Police Department.

A police officer activated his emergency equipment to pull her over, Riddle said, but Carroll did not stop until the second block of Norfolk Street.

Upon approaching the vehicle and making contact with Carroll, Riddle said, the officer observed that Carroll showed signs of intoxication. The officer administered standardized field sobriety tests and Carroll was taken to the Rehoboth Beach Police Department for further testing at which time police learned she had three prior DUI-related convictions, making this her fourth offense and a felony, Riddle said.

Carroll was charged with felony fourth-offense driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, failure to stop at a red light, and failure to have insurance identification in possession.

She was released to a sober co-signer on $850 unsecured bail.
