      Former Hidalgo County District Clerk Omar Guerrero is back in trouble with the law.

      Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested Guerrero on drug charges.

      Guerrero is expected to be officially arraigned on a felony possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute charge.

      Details about his arrest were not immediately available.

      Deputies told Action 4 News Guerrero is also being investigated for raping a 15-year-old girl.

      Back in 2010, he was arrested for sending alarming text messages to a woman.

      In 2006, he was arrested for driving while intoxicated.

      Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevio said Guerrero is a flight risk because Guerrero once fled to Mexico after being accused in the rape case.
