Police: Pittsville man caught driving on suspended license three times in two days
The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office says a Pittsville man is facing numerous charges after he was caught three separate times in two days driving on a suspended license in unregistered and uninsured vehicles, twice driving into a ditch.
At around 11:02 Saturday morning, a deputy responded to the 8000 block of Pittsville Road for a report of a vehicle in a ditch, police said. The deputy arrived to find a 1993 Ford F-350 RV stuck in a ditch alongside the road, identifying the driver as 47-year-old Dennis Dwayne White.
White reportedly told told the deputy that he went into the ditch after swerving to avoid hitting a deer and a turkey. Police say they learned that White was driving on a suspended license and that the Ford was unregistered and uninsured. White was issued citations for driving while suspended, driving uninsured and operating a vehicle without current registration. The Ford was towed from the ditch, police said.
Only two hours later at 1:14 PM, police say they received a report that the same vehicle had been driven into a ditch on Bethel Road. A responding deputy arrested White and transported him to the Central Book Unit where he was charged with another round of driving while suspended, driving uninsured and operating a vehicle without current registration. Police say the Ford was impounded and taken to a tow yard.
Officials say Wicomico County Animal Control was also called to the scene as White reportedly had seven Chihuahuas inside the vehicle.
White was released on a $3,000 unsecured bond, officials said.
The next day at around 11:22 AM, police say a deputy witnessed White driving once again in the 6000 block of Powellville Road. Though operating a different vehicle, this vehicle was also unregistered and uninsured, police said.
White was arrested again and taken in front of the District Court Commissioner for a second time. He has been released on a $3,000 unsecured bond.
