Depends on a lot more facts than you have provided including the facts surrounding the arrest (wreck? combative with cops? passengers?, etc.) and the time relationship to the prior and the success (or not) on the prior.

BTW, in Texas, it is DWI unless one is under the age of 21 and the amount of alcohol is under .08.
