State Police Arrest Greenwood Man for 6th Offense DUI

Delaware State Police arrested 63-year-old Ralph Cahall, III, of Greenwood, for 6th offense DUI and other traffic-related charges on Tuesday.

On October 10, 2023, at approximately 8:35 p.m., a trooper on patrol in the area of Unity Lane and Deep Grass Lane in Greenwood observed a black Chevrolet pickup truck that only had only one operable headlight. The trooper attempted to conduct a traffic stop. However, the driver later identified as Ralph Cahall, disregarded the trooper’s signal and began fleeing at what appeared to be a high rate of speed. After a brief vehicle pursuit, the trooper stopped pursuing the vehicle for the safety of the motoring public. The vehicle was later observed by the trooper on a dirt lane near the 14000 block of Staytonville Road.

As the trooper approached the vehicle, Cahall was observed running into a wooded area, where he was taken into custody without incident a short time later. After Cahall was taken into custody, the trooper noticed that he displayed signs of impairment. The trooper conducted Standardized Field Sobriety Testing and determined that Cahall was under the influence.

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

  • 6th offense DUI (Felony)
  • Disregarding a Police Officer Signal
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Numerous traffic-related charges

Cahall was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 7 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on a $7570 secured bond.
