LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The president of the University of Central Arkansas no longer faces an ethics complaint about campus police driving his wife and parents to campus events.
The Arkansas Ethics Commission dismissed the complaint Friday against President Allen C. Meadors.
According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, commission director Graham Sloan told Meadors in a letter that an investigation found that Meadors' wife, Barbara, and his parents were picked up from university-owned residences where they live and taken to on-campus events to which they were invited.
Sloan says the panel decided there was no probable cause that Meadors violated a state statute by using or attempting to use his position as UCA president to obtain special privileges for family members.
In an e-mail, Meadors said he hadn't received any official documentation from the commission.
