Kent State criminology professor and former Kent police official was arrested on felony drug and weapons charges and sentenced Monday to complete a drug treatment program, according to the Record Courier.
Daniel FitzPatrick has yet to be reprimanded by the university and still remains on the list of instructors, although it states in in the KSU employment policy that "to be involved in the possession, use, distribution of and sale of illegal drugs is strictly prohibited."
He was arrested in December 2011 after being pulled out by Ohio Highway Patrol. The trooper found a loaded handgun and bath salts in FitzPatrick's car. His blood also tested positive for marijuana.
Instead of a conviction, FitzPatrick opted to pleaded guilty and receive a year-long stint in a treatment program. The felony convictions will be dismissed if he completes the program.
