Princess Ann Man Arrested For 8th DUI

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Maryland State Police say they arrested a man for his 8th DUI this morning.

According to reports, around 2:57 AM, Trooper Riggs of the Salisbury Barrack was patrolling the area of the Royal Farm store located on 901 Snow Hill Drive in Salisbury, when he saw a blue 1987 Dodge truck in the parking lot running with the headlight and rear brake lights on. The trooper reportedly saw an occupant in the driver's seat, Anthony Ward, 44, of Princess Anne, with a can of Bud Light beer between his legs. Ward allegedly had both of his feet on the brake pedal and was passed out asleep.

The Trooper says he was able to get the car door open and the ignition off, and reportedly smelled the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from Ward.  Ward reportedly refused to conduct a field sobriety test, and could not walk on his own. The trooper says he had to escort Ward to his car, and then arrested him.

A license check through Maryland and Delaware allegedly revealed that Ward is suspended and revoked in both States.  The Trooper also reportedly discovered that Ward had been convicted of DUI in Maryland five times and two times in Delaware.  Troopers say this will be Ward's eighth DUI arrest, and out of the first seven DUI arrests, Ward was convicted. He was allegedly transported to the Wicomico County Detention Center.
