A psychology professor at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville is on paid leave after she was arrested for DUI while on campus earlier this month. 50-year-old Cynthia Nordstrom of Worden was also cited for failure to reduce speed and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.
SIUE Police report Nordstrom struck another vehicle as she was attempting to park her vehicle around 8:30am on January 14th. An officer responding to the scene suspected Nordstrom was under the influence and after transport to the SIUE Police Station; her sobriety test showed she had a blood alcohol level of point-2-4-1. Point-0-8 and above is considered legally intoxicated. She is due in court to face the charges next week.
