MIDLAND - A Midland man has been convicted of his fifth DWI charge.

39-year-old Joe Fuentes was sentenced to 45 years in prison.

According to the report, back in February he ran a red light right in front of a Midland County Deputy.

Fuentes led them on a chase into a neighborhood and eventually crashed into a fence.

He then ran off on foot but was later caught.

The report says his blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

This is the fifth time Fuentes has been found guilty of driving while intoxicated.
