REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- A Delaware man has been charged with drunken driving for the sixth time.
Delaware State Police said 39-year-old Jeffrey W. Barnes of Bear was pulled over shortly after 1 a.m. Friday in Rehoboth Beach. Police said a trooper on routine patrol observed an SUV driven by Barnes as it made an illegal U-turn, drove south in the northbound lanes of Coastal Highway and then crossed a concrete median into the southbound lanes.
