A Delaware man was arrested for his sixth DUI, according to officials.

A Delaware State Trooper who was parked on East Diamond Street in Dagsboro, Delaware Wednesday shortly after 9 p.m. spotted a 2012 GMC Sierra traveling northbound on Power Plant Road without a headlight, police said.

The trooper said he smelled an odor of marijuana and alcohol coming from Levis. Levis was taken into custody and officials determined he had been driving under the influence, police said. State Troopers also found 16 Oxycodone pills and 16.74 grams of marijuana inside Levis’ vehicle, according to investigators.

Levis was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving while suspended or revoked, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of marijuana and driving without two headlights. He was arraigned and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $12,650 secured bond.

Officials say Levis was already convicted of DUI five times prior to his arrest Wednesday.
