Delaware State Police arrested 32-year-old Dwayne L. Waltman, of Milford, Delaware, for a 5th offense DUI and other criminal and traffic-related charges on Monday in Greenwood.

On October 16, 2023, at approximately 9:00 p.m., a trooper on patrol in the area of Unity Lane and Deep Branch Road in Greenwood observed a white male driving a black Dodge pickup truck. During a computer check, it was discovered that the owner of the vehicle, Dwayne Waltman, had a revoked driver’s license. The trooper verified that the driver matched the description of the registered owner and proceeded to conduct a traffic stop. While the vehicle was coming to a stop on Shawnee Road, the driver threw drug paraphernalia out of the window. After contacting the driver, who was confirmed to be Waltman, the trooper observed signs of impairment. It was determined that Waltman was under the influence after conducting Standardized Field Sobriety Testing. He was taken into custody without incident. A search of the pickup truck led to the discovery of additional drug paraphernalia.

Waltman was taken to Troop 3, where a computer check revealed he had four previous DUI convictions. He was charged with the following crimes:


  • 5th offense DUI (Felony)
  • Tampering with Evidence (Felony)
  • Criminal Solicitation
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
  • Driving while Revoked

Waltman was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 7 and released on his own recognizance.
