Bridgeville Man Charged With DUI, Resisting Arrest

A Bridgeville man has been arrested on multiple offenses following a hit and run accident.

Delaware State Police said troopers determined that a pick-up truck with a trailer attached crossed the center line of Seaford Road Tuesday night and collided with a work van. The pick-up driver kept going, and the other driver was not hurt.

Police later located the pick-up truck being pushed by another vehicle in Laurel, before getting stuck on railroad tracks. Troopers said 29-year-old Gerson Adaquin of Bridgeville was still behind the wheel of the damaged pick-up.

The smell of alcohol led to further investigation, and State Police said Adaquin became argumentative and resisted arrest with force. He is charged with resisting arrest, DUI, disorderly conduct and many motor vehicle offenses.
