Laurel- The Delaware State Police have arrested a Laurel man after he was found to be under the influence of alcohol for the 5th time.

The incident occurred on Sunday, January 14, 2018 at approximately 12:05 a.m. as a Trooper was traveling west bound on South Pine Ridge Drive when a 1997 Dodge Pick Up truck emerged from Chelsea Lane, pulling directly in the path of the Trooper’s vehicle. A traffic stop was initiated and contact was made with the operator, identified as 39-year-old Sean Michael Dunston of Laurel.

An odor of alcohol was detected and a DUI investigation ensued.  A computer check revealed that Dunston had four previous DUI convictions, making this his fifth offense.  Dunston was subsequently arrested and transported back to Troop 5 where he was charged with 5th Offense Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (Felony).  He was arraigned out of Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institute on $6000.00 cash only bond.
