Lincoln man arrested on DUI, resisting arrest, drug charges in Georgetown

Donald Hester, 38, of Lincoln, Del.

A Lincoln man was arrested Saturday in Georgetown on several charges including DUI, resisting arrest and possession of heroin, the Georgetown Police Department said.

Police received reports Saturday of a vehicle driving erratically on northbound DuPont Boulevard. Officers located the vehicle and performed a traffic stop, the vehicle pulling into the McDonald's parking lot.

Upon making contact with the driver, identified as 38-year-old Donald Hester, police say officers detected a strong odor of alcohol. Police administered field sobriety tests, which Hester failed, officials said. As officers attempted to take Hester into custody, he reportedly resisted his arrest and damaged a police vehicle in the process.

A search of Hester's vehicle revealed 48 bags of suspected heroin and a small plastic baggie of cocaine, police said.

Hester is charged with DUI, resisting arrest, two counts of possession of a controlled substance and multiple motor vehicle violations. He has been committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on a $5,000 bond.
