Millsboro Police say they arrested a Bridgeville man after he was found to be driving under the influence of alcohol for the eighth time.
According to police it happened around 6:30 pm Wednesday as a Millsboro Officer on patrol observed a red Ford F-250 traveling on Delaware Ave. with an invalid vehicle registration. The officer performed a traffic stop on the vehicle and made contact with the operator, who was identified as Charles R. Alsentzer, 55, of Bridgeville. Upon contacting the driver, an odor of alcohol was detected and a DUI investigation ensued.
Millsboro PD said Alsentzer was taken back to the station where officers said a computer check revealed he had seven previous DUI convictions.
Along with the DUI offense, Alsentzer was also charged with driving while suspended and revoked, and failing to transfer vehicle registration. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $10,501 secured bond after being arraigned at JP2.
