A Wilmington man is facing his fourth DUI charge after state troopers found him inside an idle vehicle on a highway in Wilmington on Tuesday night.

According to Delaware State Police, 57-year-old Kendall Brown was taken into custody after troopers were called to I-95 near Frawley Stadium around 6:30 p.m. for reports of a disabled vehicle.
