DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police said troopers arrested a man Saturday for driving under the influence, his fourth DUI offense.

The incident happened shortly after 9 p.m. Saturday on Bayside Drive, just south of South Little Creek Drive. According to police, troopers saw David E. Johnson, 54, of Dover, driving erratically and tried to pull him over. However, police said Johnson drove five miles down Bay Road and exited onto East Lebanon Road before he came to a stop. 

Troopers said they smelled alcohol when they finally pulled him over, and performed a DUI investigation. Police also discovered in a computer check that Johnson had been charged with three prior DUI convictions. 

Johnson was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and disregarding a police officer's signal, among others, and was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $5,705 secured bail.
