SUNLAND PARK, N.M. (AP) — Another councilor in a troubled New Mexico border city is facing legal troubles.
Authorities say Sunland Park City Councilor Daniel De Los Santos was arrested Saturday for allegedly providing beer to two 19-year-olds, including his girlfriend. A criminal complaint says the 22-year-old De Los Santos is facing two counts of selling or giving alcoholic beverages to a minor, a fourth-degree felony.
It was not known if De Los Santos had an attorney.
The arrest comes days after Sunland Park councilor Sergio Carrillo was taken into custody at city hall in connection with drug possession charges.
Earlier this year, a former mayoral candidate in Sunland Park pleaded guilty to extortion for secretly recording an opponent receiving a lap dance from a topless woman.
The city drew national attention in 2012 after news of the recording became public.
