Bridgeville Man Arrested for 5th DUI Offense

Posted: Updated:
 HARRINGTON, Del.- Harrington police say officers arrested a Bridgeville man for a 5th driving under the influence offense and other charges. 

While on patrol on Tuesday, Sept. 23, officers say they stopped a vehicle on South DuPont Highway for a traffic violation.  Officers say they then contacted the driver of the vehicle, 36-year-old Roy L. Warner Jr., of the 4500 Block of Dublin Hill Road in Bridgeville. While speaking to Warner, officers said they observed Warner's eyes were bloodshot and officers say they smelled and odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle. 

Police say they then administered standard field sobriety tests to Warner.

After completing the tests, police say Warner was taken into custody and transported to the Harrington Police Department for processing. 

While at the Harrington Police Department, police said Warner became belligerent and began yelling and cursing at the officers. Police say Warner refused to go into the holding cell and began resisting arrest with officers. While resisting arrest with officers, officers say Warner damaged the intoxilyzer. After several commands to stop resisting and after failing to comply with officers commands, an officer deployed his departmental taser to take Warner into custody, according to police. 

Harrington police say a computer check revealed that Warner had four previous DUI convictions dating back to 2007. 

Warner was charged with 5th offense DUI, resisting arrest, criminal mischief under $1,000, driving without a valid license and failure to have identification in possession.  

Warner was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3 and was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institute in default of $5,900 secured bond.
