The Delaware State Police says a Dagsboro man has been charged with his twelfth DUI offense after crashing his car.

The Delaware State Police says troopers responded Friday around 7:30 p.m. to a report of a driver walking away from a single-vehicle crash on Nine Foot Road in Dagsboro.

Troopers found a 1998 Ford Mustang had driven off the road and found its driver, 55-year-old James Fisher, hiding behind bushes nearby.

Troopers say Fisher was arrested and a check of his criminal history revealed 11 DUI convictions.

Troopers say his driver's license was suspended and his car not properly registered. Fisher was charged with felony DUI and other offenses and is being held on $21,650 bail.

Fisher did not appear to have a listed telephone number.
