Derusha was arrested in 1998 for driving while intoxicated in Navarro County.
In 2003, he was arrested in Tarrant County for his second DWI, pleaded guilty and was fined $700 and sentenced to 30 days in jail, according to state documents.
Derusha was arrested again in 2006 for a DWI in Parker County.
