A Georgetown man was arrested on his 5th DUI charge in Rehoboth.

According to Delaware State Police, around 12:30 p.m., Saturday troopers were dispatched to a restaurant on Coastal Highway in Rehoboth for a welfare check.

Police arrived and learned that a man, later identified as 52-year-old Christopher Goff, drove his vehicle to the restaurant, walked inside to order food, and then sat down nodding on and off in and out of consciousness.

Troopers found Goff slumped over and detected a strong odor of alcohol emanating from his breath, according to police. He was unresponsive after several attempts to check his welfare.

After he awoke, he appeared to be intoxicated and showed multiple signs of impairment, police said. A DUI investigation was initiated and a computer inquiry revealed he had four previous DUI convictions.

Goff was taken into custody without incident and charged with his 5th Offense DUI (Felony). He was arraigned and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $6,000 secured bond.
