DAGSBORO, Del.- Delaware State Police say they have charged a Dagsboro man with his 12th-offense DUI after he was found taking off from the scene of a crash Friday night. 

The incident happened at around 7:30 p.m. when police got a report of a driver walking away from a single-vehicle crash on Nine Foot Road. 

Police said that a 1998 Ford Mustang had driven off of the road but was soon located with its driver, 55-year-old James Fisher, hiding behind bushes nearby. Fisher was not injured in the crash.
 
Authorities said that after determining that Fisher was under the influence of alcohol, he was taken into custody. Troopers said a routine check of his criminal history revealed Fisher had 11 DUI convictions. Police said that additionally, Fisher's driver's license was suspended and his vehicle was not properly registered.
 
Police said that while detained, Fisher was uncooperative and refused to be photographed and fingerprinted. He was charged with felony DUI, failure to comply with taking of photographs and fingerprints, and numerous traffic charges. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $21,650 cash bail.
