The El Dorado County Office of Education Superintendent has been arrested for the second time in five months for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Sergeant Chris Sahagun with the California Highway Patrol says Jeremy Meyers crashed his car into a tree on Green Valley Road near Mortara Circle at 2:50 p.m. Thursday.

"An off-duty Placer County Sheriff's deputy was following him and called in a suspected DUI driver and then actually witnessed the collision," Sahagun said.

Investigators say Meyer's car suffered major damage.

Sahagun says Meyers was taken to Marshall Hospital after he failed a field sobriety test and at the hospital. Sahagun says Meyers'  breathalyzer tests registered a .18 and .19. Both are more than twice the legal limit.

Meyers was booked into the Eldorado County Jail on suspicion of driving under the influence.

He was also arrested in June for DUI. He pleaded no contest in August.
