A Georgetown man is facing his fifth DUI offense.
Delaware State Police say a trooper pulled over a vehicle on Sussex Highway near Newton Road in Bridgeville Monday afternoon for speeding and failing to remain in a single lane. The smell of alcohol led to a DUI investigation and a computer check determined the driver had four previous DUI convictions.
State Police say 39-year-old Terry Bruinton was taken into custody and charged with fifth offense DUI, driving while suspended, and traffic offenses.
State Police listed these charges:
Bruinton was taken into custody without incident and transported to Troop 5, where he was charged with the following crimes:
- 5th Offense DUI (Felony)
- Driving While Suspended
- Failed to Remain in Single Lane
- Speeding in Excess of 55 MPH
Bruinton was arraigned in the Justice of the Peace Court #3 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on a $6,200.00 cash bond.
