Delaware State Police arrested 61-year-old Roy Brown of Millsboro, Delaware, for 7th offense DUI following a traffic stop on Sunday evening in Rehoboth Beach.
On October 1, 2023, at approximately 9:55 p.m., a trooper on patrol observed a maroon Saturn SUV traveling southbound on Coastal Highway south of Postal Lane, swerving from the right lane into the middle lane and fluctuating speeds. As the vehicle approached the red light on Coastal Highway at Old Landing Road, the operator abruptly made a right turn onto Old Landing Road without activating the right turn signal. The trooper stopped the Saturn, contacted the operator, identified as Roy Brown, and detected signs of impairment. Brown was taken into custody after he partially completed the Standardized Field Sobriety Test. A computer check showed a court order resulting from a DUI that prevented Brown from driving a motor vehicle, along with several prior DUI convictions.
Brown was transported to Troop 7, where he was charged with the following crimes:
- 7th Offense DUI (Felony)
- Noncompliance with Bond Conditions (Felony)
- Traffic Offenses
Brown was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on a $22,600 cash bond.
