53-year-old Kervy E. Riley arrested

Delaware State Police arrested a Lincoln man after he was found to be operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol for the sixth time.

The incident occurred around 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 19, as a trooper was traveling southbound on DuPont Boulevard (Route 113), north of West Robbins Road in Ellendale , and observed a Chevrolet Malibu on the shoulder of the roadway with its flashing lights on. The trooper pulled behind the vehicle to check on the occupants and made contact with the operator, 53-year-old Kervy E. Riley, of Lincoln, and detected an odor of alcohol. A DUI investigation ensued and Riley was taken into custody. A computer check revealed Riley had five previous DUI convictions.

Riley was charged with sixth offense driving under the influence of alcohol, driving after judgment prohibited and driving while suspended or revoked. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $11,500 secured bond.
