A Dagsboro man has been charged with twelfth-offense DUI after he was found fleeing a crash Friday evening. Troopers responded to a report of a driver walking away from a single-vehicle crash on Nine Foot Road. Troopers found a car had been driven off of the road and located its driver, 55 year old James Fisher hiding behind bushes nearby. Fisher was not injured in the crash and was under the influence of alcohol. 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. Fisher has been committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $21,650 cash bail.
