HARRINGTON, Del. (AP) - Harrington police say a man was arrested for his sixth-offense driving under the influence of alcohol.

An officer on patrol early Saturday morning stopped 56-year-old David Dale on U.S. 13 for speeding. Police Lt. Earl Brode says the officer noticed the odor of alcohol from Dale’s vehicle and administered field sobriety tests. Drug paraphernalia was found during a search of his vehicle.

Brode says a computer check showed Dale had five previous DUI convictions, the first one in 1987.

Dale was charged with a DUI, drug paraphernalia possession and speeding and placed in Sussex Correctional Institution. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.
