A Townsend man is facing a felony charge--his 6th DUI--after a single-vehicle crash Friday night.

Christopher Husfelt, 44, was drunk when his Jeep ran off Dexter Corner road and hit a utility pole, breaking the pole in half, Delaware State Police said.

A trooper said they smelled alcohol on Husfelt's breath during questioning, Husfelt was found to be impaired, and a computer check revealed Husfelt had five DUI convictions on his record.

He was treated for minor injuries at a local hospital, and when he was released, Husfelt was taken to Troop 9 to be charged.
