Milton man arrested on 6th DUI

MILTON, Del. – Delaware State Police arrested a Milton man Christmas night after he was found to be driving under the influence.

We’re told that at around 9:15 p.m., a trooper observed a vehicle stopped in the road impeding traffic on West Springdale Drive in Milton. The trooper initiated a traffic stop and after making contact with the driver, 54-year-old William Aikens Jr., a strong odor of alcohol was detected. Aikens reportedly appeared to be intoxicated and showed multiple signs of impairment.

A subsequent computer inquiry revealed that Aikens had five prior DUI convictions.

After being taken into custody, Aikens reportedly became disorderly and began yelling and using abuse language, causing neighborhood residents to walk outside. Aikens initially refused to get in the patrol vehicle, and once inside he continued to yell and violently kicked the door, damaging the vehicle.

A search of Aikens’ vehicle led police to find 1.3 grams of marijuana in a plastic sandwich baggie. Police say he also refused to submit to processing and having his fingerprints and mug shot taken.

Aikens was charged with 6th offense DUI, resisting arrest, failure to comply with taking mug shot and fingerprints, criminal mischief, possession of marijuana, disorderly conduct, failure to have insurance, and other traffic related charges. He was held at SCI on $6,800 secured bond.
