LAUREL, DEL. — According to Delaware State Police Spokeswoman Melissa Jaffe, the Delaware State Police have arrested a Laurel man after he was found to be under the influence of alcohol for the 5th time.
The incident occurred on Sunday, January 14, 2018, at approximately 12:05 a.m. as a Trooper was traveling westbound on South Pine Ridge Drive when a 1997 Dodge Pick Up truck emerged from Chelsea Lane, pulling directly in the path of the Trooper’s vehicle.
Police say that a traffic stop was initiated, and contact was made with the operator, identified as 39-year-old Sean Michael Dunston of Laurel.
An odor of alcohol was detected, and a DUI investigation ensued. A computer check revealed that Dunston had four previous DUI convictions, making this his fifth offense.
Dunston was subsequently arrested and transported back to Troop 5 where he was charged with 5th Offense Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (Felony). He was arraigned out of Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institute on $6000.00 cash only bond.
Dunston posted numerous photos of his Dodge pickup on his Facebook page, along with a photo of himself posing with a grave marker.
