Dagsboro – A Dagsboro man was charged with twelfth-offense DUI after he was found fleeing a crash yesterday.

The incident occurred at 7:25 p.m. when Troopers received a report of a driver walking away from a single-vehicle crash on Nine Foot Road. Responding Troopers found a 1998 Ford Mustang had driven off of the road and located its driver, James Fisher, 55, hiding behind bushes nearby. Fisher was not injured in the crash.

After determining that Fisher was under the influence of alcohol, he was taken into custody. A routine check of his criminal history revealed Fisher had eleven DUI convictions. Additionally, his driver's license was suspended and his vehicle was not properly registered.

While detained, Fisher was 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.

How about we put the prosecutors and judges who let this drunk continue to be out there in jail with him?

For real 2:25. This is something we should never be reading about. When he finally kills innocent people the prosecutors and judges will feign outrage when the handwritings been on the wall many DWI's ago, that this guy could care less about obeying the laws of the land.

I assume his drivers license was suspended following his 11th DUI and not after his 12th.Every time I've ever seen this guy out and about he's completely wasted.

Doesn't anybody see how ludicrous this is? 12 DUI's, come on!! This bastard should have been locked up after number 1. Mandatory 90 days in jail with no work release period! If your going to drink and drive, putting everyone on the road in danger, then you don't deserve to have a life! Lock them up!!

This is a reflection of the justice system in DE. NOT the police. Police have done their job 12 times. The system has failed the citizens 12 times. Democrat state HELLO!
