Troopers Arrest Man for 6th Offense DUI

The Delaware State Police have arrested 57-year-old George Elliott of Ocean View, Delaware for sixth-offense DUI following a traffic stop that occurred in Lincoln last night.

On December 20, 2022, at approximately 9:05 p.m., a trooper on patrol observed a 2018 black Ford pickup truck traveling northbound on Dupont Boulevard in the area of East Hudson Pond Road.

The trooper contacted the driver, identified as George Elliott, and detected signs of impairment. A DUI investigation ensued, and Elliott was subsequently taken into custody without incident. A computer check of Elliott revealed that he had five prior DUI convictions.

Elliott was transported to Troop 5 and charged with 6th Offense DUI and other traffic offenses. Elliott was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court # 3 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $5,101 cash bond.
