University President Pleads Guilty to Drunken Driving

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.
