Posted: Updated:

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- A man on probation for a third DUI offense has been arrested by Rehoboth Beach police for his fourth offense of driving under the influence.

Justin M. Martine, 36, of Rehoboth Beach, was arrested Wednesday night after he was initially stopped for committing a traffic violation. 

According to police, an officer observed Martine driving a silver Jeep Compass at around around 8 p.m. The officer reported that Martine turned left from First Street onto Rehoboth Avenue westbound.  However, police say the intersection is signed for no left turns from all directions.  Martine struck the curb, rupturing the front right tire.  The officer, who was on foot, relayed the information to officers on vehicle patrol.  Martine was located and pulled over by a second officer on Rehoboth Avenue .

When he approached the vehicle and made contact with Martine, the officer reported that he showed signs of intoxication.  Martine was administered standardized field sobriety tests and arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. Martine was transported back to the Rehoboth Beach Police Department for further testing at which time the officer determined that he had three prior DUI-related convictions, making this his fourth offense and a felony.

Martine is currently on probation and alcohol monitoring as a result of his conviction for a third offense DUI.  Delaware Probation and Parole was contacted and officers obtained an administrative warrant for Martine for violating the conditions of his probation.

Martine was arrested by the Rehoboth Beach Police Department and charged with one count of fourth offense driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, which is a felony.  He was also charged with one count of driving with a suspended or revoked license, one count of failure to have insurance identification in possession, one count of failure to have the vehicle registration card in possession, one count of failure to obey a traffic control device, one count of following a motor vehicle too closely, and one count of failure to report a change of address, which are all traffic misdemeanors.
