Dallas Colby Twyne, the 28-year-old Manteo man arrested for hit-and-run and possession of drugs in Wanchese in July, was arrested last week in Plymouth, N.C. on charges of Driving While Impaired and Hit-and-Run, Leaving the Scene of an Accident, with property damage involved after he struck a parked car with no one inside.

That incident took place on Oct. 8 on U.S. 64. According to a Plymouth Police detective familiar with the case, Twyne was subsequently released on bond.

Back on July 22, Twyne was arrested by Dare County Sheriff’s deputies responding a hit-and-run near 674 Old Wharf Rd, in Wanchese. At that time, he was charged with Possession of Scheduled II Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Hit and Run Leaving the Scene of an Accident. And he was released on a $12,000 secured bond.

    Testing for blood alcohol makes people look bad. When you test you create DWI cases. Should probably think about slowing the testing down a little.

    “And he was released on a $12,000 secured bond.“
    Keep letting him out, so he can kill someone next time.

    So, this comes under the Fish & Wildlife rules of “catch and release” ?

    Isn’t this the same guy I criticized last arrest and everyone came out of the woodwork to say how good of a guy he was and just made a mistake? Yep, sure is…

    Lou: He is good. Good for nothing. It’s time that he learned to be a responsible adult before he ends up behind bars for a long time.

    We all make mistakes, the difference is the responsible civic minded among us learn from those mistakes and don’t repeat them. When you show yourself to be a habitual criminal then you don’t deserve to live among the law abiding public.

    When he finally kills somebody with his car while “out on bond” THEN somebody will wake up and wonder “how could that have happened”?
