HARRINGTON, Del.- Harrington police say a weekend traffic stop led to a 42-year-old Smyrna man being charged with his fifth DUI.

Police said that on Saturday, officers patrolling stopped a car being driven by Matthew N. Fabiszak in the area of Delaware Avenue for a traffic violation. As officers approached Fabiszak'a car, they said they detected the odor of alcohol coming from inside the vehicle.

The officers then conducted field tests on Fabiszak, and as a result of these tests took Fabiszak into custody.

Police said a computer check showed Fabiszak was wanted by the Kent County Court of Common Pleas and Justice of the Peace Court 7. Authorities also said Fabiszak had four previous DUI convictions.

Fabiszak has been charged with fifth offense DUI, driving while suspended or revoked, failure to have insurance identification in possession, failure to have two head lamps, failure to have registration plate light, possession of a suspended license, failure to report change of address and improper stop lamp. He was ordered held in the Sussex Correctional Institution in default of a $6,900 secured bond.
