GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A professor at the University of North Dakota has been arrested on campus on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

The University of North Dakota Police Department says driver Frank Cuozzo was pulled over on campus Tuesday morning for an expired registration on a car. The UND police officer then detected the odor of alcohol and arrested Cuozzo after conducting a field sobriety test.

The police department says Cuozzo was also arrested for driving under revocation. He was booked into the Grand Forks County Correctional Center.

Court records show Cuozzo pleaded guilty in 2011 to one count of reckless driving and was sentenced to one year of probation.

Cuozzo is part of UND's anthropology department. It is unclear whether he has legal representation.
