GAINES COUNTY - A Gaines County Commissioner has been charged with DWI.

Almost a year ago, state troopers arrested Precinct four Commissioner, Charlie Lopez.

Because the judge and attorneys know him, Gaines County will bring in a substitute judge and district attorney to hear the case.

The judge tells NewsWest 9, this will not affect his position as a Commissioner.

His position is up for election this year.
