YORK COUNTY, S.C. -- A former York County Councilman who was charged with driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident early Tuesday morning is now in federal custody and will likely miss the birth of his child after a judge revoked his bond Friday morning.

Paul Lindemann was due to begin an 18-month federal prison sentence in April after pleading guilty to lying on a mortgage application, but the sentence was delayed because his wife is expecting their second child within the next few days.

But with Tuesday morning's DUI, Lindemann will start that prison term right away and in all likelihood will miss the birth of the couple's baby.

Lindemann is a former council member that represented District 1 for Fort Mill on the York County Council and crashed his car off of Hensley Road around 1:45 a.m. Tuesday, according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

In 2008 Lindemann was also arrested in Columbia, South Carolina for DUI.  He plead guilty to a lesser offense.
