GAINES COUNTY - It's only been seven months since a Gaines County Commissioner pleaded guilty to DWI charges, now Commissioner Isaias Lopez is spending more time behind bars for his second DWI offense.

The 64-year-old Seminole Commissioner was taken into custody last week after a car accident.

When police arrived, they discovered that both drivers had been drinking.

Lopez and the other driver were taken to the Gaines County Jail.

The Commissioner first plead guilty to DWI back in February of 2009 after he was stopped by state troopers.

Lopez posted bail shortly after he was arrested.
