Hartly, DE - The Delaware State Police arrested a Hartly man Sunday afternoon for a 9thoffense DUI.
The incident occurred around 3:30 p.m. yesterday after a trooper was dispatched to a residence in the 900 block of Myers Drive for a report of a truck broke down in the driveway. Upon the troopers arrival, it was determined that Dale A. Guifoil, 51 of Hartly, was attempting to leave a yard sale at that address when a mechanical issue with his truck prevented him from leaving. An odor of alcohol was detected on Guifoil as the trooper was talking to him while he was seated in the driver’s seat of the truck and a DUI investigation ensued.
Guifoil was subsequently taken into custody and transported back to Troop 3 where an inquiry into his driving record revealed eight previous DUI convictions (07/29/93, 09/07/93, 12/05/94, 02/04/02, 03/10/03, 09/15/04, 09/04/08, and 12/18/09); this arrest would make #9.
Dale Guifoil was charged with Felony DUI (Alcohol), Possession of a Controlled Substance without a Prescription (Oxycodone), Driving While Suspended or Revoked, Failure to Have Insurance in Possession, Fictitious Registration, and Operation of an Unregistered Motor Vehicle. He was arraigned at JP3 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $10,650.00 secured bond.
