Delaware: Ryan Ott locked up for 5th DWI arrest

NEW CASTLE, DEL. – The citizens of Delaware are living the life predicted by H. L. Mencken one hundred years ago when he said: “The common man knows what he wants, and he deserves to get it good and hard.”

Years of electing liberals to an office where lenient Judges are appointed to hand out lenient sentences allow for a parade of criminals to be released on the streets and for impaired drivers to rack up one DWI arrest after another without fear of incarceration.

The Delaware State Police report that they have arrested a Newark man with his 5th offense DUI after he was involved in a motor vehicle crash.

Police say that the incident occurred on Friday, January 19, 2018, at approximately 6:44 p.m. when Troopers were dispatched to the intersection of Llangollen Blvd and US-13 in reference to a crash involving two motor vehicles.

The Trooper’s investigation revealed that a 2017 Ford F-150 was traveling eastbound on Llangollen Boulevard in the left lane approaching the entrance to South Dupont Highway.  A 1992 Jeep Cherokee was traveling westbound on Llangollen Boulevard and began to cross over the eastbound lanes of travel into the path of the Ford F-150.  Subsequently, the front of the Jeep struck the left side of the Ford F-150.

Upon the Troopers arrival, the occupant of the Jeep was still seated in the driver’s seat. Contact was made with the operator, identified as 52-year-old Ryan P. Ott of Newark.  An odor of alcohol was detected, and a DUI investigation ensued.

Delaware State Police report that their computer check revealed that Ott had four previous DUI convictions, making this his fifth offense.  Ott was subsequently arrested and transported back to Troop 2 where he was charged with 5th Offense Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (Felony) and Inattentive Driving.  He was arraigned out of Justice of the Peace Court 2 and committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Institute on $5,000.00 cash only bond.

There were no injuries reported as a result of this crash.
