GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - The president of Davenport University
has pleaded guilty to a first-time drunken-driving charge and
refusing to take a breath test during his arrest.
Fifty-one-year-old Randolph Flechsig, president of the Michigan
school, entered the plea Monday. He was not sentenced.
Grand Rapids police arrested him on Sept. 21. A blood sample
obtained with a search warrant more than two hours after the arrest
showed Flechsig had a blood-alcohol content of .09 percent, just
above the legal limit of .08 percent.
Flechsig says he hopes to use his experience to educate students
about the perils of drinking and driving.
Davenport University, which has 13,000 students, is based in
Grand Rapids, Mich.
