Gregory A. Dukes was arrested Aug. 29.
Troopers with the Delaware State Police arrested a Maryland man after he was found passed out in his car.
The vehicle was in the middle of the intersection of Evans Drive and Iris Field Lane, division spokeswoman Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe said.
Gregory A. Dukes, 19, of Federalsburg, Md., was taken into custody at about 11:23 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 29.
Troopers found Dukes unconscious in the driver’s seat of a Hyundai Electra and also smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the car.
Their investigation showed the Electra had been traveling on Sussex Highway when it left the road, hit a ditch and went back onto the roadway, where it stopped at the intersection. The vehicle had front end damage as a result, Jaffe said.
When arrested, Dukes was found carrying unspecified drug paraphernalia; a search of the Electra turned up about 1.4 grams of marijuana, six 1 milligram Alprazolam pills, a .22-caliber revolver, a .22-caliber long rifle, ammunition, and more drug paraphernalia.
As a result, Dukes is charged with two counts each of carrying a concealed deadly weapon, possession of a firearm while under the influence and possession of drug paraphernalia. He also is charged with possessing a controlled or counterfeit controlled substance, leaving the scene of a property collision accident, failure to provide information at a collision scene and driving a vehicle under the influence of drugs.
Dukes was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution, Georgetown, on a $12,900 secured bond.
