UConn Chemistry Professor Faces DUI Charge
Vernon, Conn. – On Saturday, a UConn chemistry professor identified as 47-year-old Gabriel Fenteany was driving under the influence of alcohol and is now facing DUI charges.
According to the police, they initially stopped the professor for failing to signal as he pulled into a parking lot on Hartford Turnpike around 8:30 p.m.
The police officer issued him a field sobriety test in which he failed. His bond was set at $2,500.
Last month, they were called to Fenteany’s apartment on a welfare check, said the police.
According to the officers, he kicked and spit at a policeman using a racial slur in the process. His bond in that incident is $100,000.
Last December, Fenteany was in trouble with the law when he was charged with urinating in a parking lot and damaging vehicles in Greenwich.
UConn said that he’s been on administrative leave since that crash which he caused.
