Police arrested a Lufkin man during a traffic stop Saturday for driving while intoxicated.

According to the report, Jesus Gomez, 58 of Lufkin was stopped by police for failing to yield right of way.

The officer found alcoholic beverage containers in the vehicle and observed obvious indicators that Gomez had been drinking.

Several Standardized Sobriety Tests were given, and evidence of intoxication was found.  Gomez was arrested for DWI and transported to the Angelina County Jail.

 A breath test was administered revealing Gomez had a blood alcohol concentration well over twice the legal limit.  Gomez had already been convicted of two previous DWI charges that enhanced this offense to a 3rd degree felony.
