Delaware Man Charged With 12th DUI After Car Crash

Posted: Updated:

A Delaware man was charged with his 12th DUI after he fled the scene of a car crash.

 On Friday at 7:25 p.m., police responded to reports of a man leaving the scene of a single accident on Nine Foot Road in Dagsboro, DE.

Upon arrival, police found a 1998 Ford Mustang had driven off of the road and located its driver, James Fisher, 55, hiding behind bushes nearby.

Fisher was taken in to custody after the police determined he was under the influence of alcohol.  His criminal history then revealed that Fisher had 11 DUI convictions, a suspended license, and an unregistered vehicle.

While Fisher was in custody, he was allegedly uncooperative and refused to be photographed and fingerprinted.

He was charged with felony DUI, failure to comply with taking of photographs and fingerprints, and numerous traffic charges.

 He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $21,650 cash bail.
