A Dover man has been charged with DUI and gun offenses after an investigation Saturday. Delaware State Police were called just before 3am for a person passed out behind the wheel after a Ford Edge was found stopped against a curb in the northbound lanes on South Dupont Highway. When Troopers contacted the driver, 25 year old Keyan Williams of Dover, they saw signs of impairment and smelled burnt marijuana coming from the vehicle and saw marijuana in plain view.

  • Possession of a Firearm While Possessing a Controlled Substance (Felony)
  • Carrying a Concealed Firearm (Felony)
  • Possession of Marijuana Other Than Personal Use Quantity
  • Possession of a Firearm While Under the Influence

  • Failure to Remain Within a Single Lane

Williams was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 7 and was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $3,125 secured bond.
