While attempting to leave a yard sale, Dale A. Guifoi, a fiftyone-year old resident of Hartly Delaware, suffered a mechanical failure in his pickup truck. Police were notified of the broken down vehicle and when they arrived they found Guifoi sitting in the cab of the vehicle. While speaking to him the officers detected a “strong smell of alcohol” and made the decision to initiate a DUI investigation. It wasn’t until after Guifoi had been placed under arrest and taken to the police station that his eight prior DUI arrests were discovered. He was charged with 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.
