An official with the University of Arkansas at Little Rock athletic department was arrested on charges he drove while intoxicated last week.
Gary R. Hogan, 63, associate athletic director at UALR, was booked on charges of DWI, refusal to submit and unsafe driving on Thursday, according to the arrest report from the North Little Rock Police Department.
According to the report, Hogan's white 2012 Chevrolet Corvette was pulled over at 9:36 p.m. at the 4600 block of Hampton Road, just off McCain Boulevard, with the officer on the scene detecting the "odor of intoxicants" on Hogan. Hogan admitted to the officer he had been drinking, police said.
The report also states that officers received "two calls about a white Corvette driving on the wrong side of the road."
The officer administered a breathalyzer test to Hogan, revealing his blood-alcohol content to be 0.148. The threshold for drunken driving in Arkansas is a blood-alcohol level of 0.08. The report also states that Hogan was "unable to complete the field sobriety test due to his condition."
He was advised of the charges and taken to the Pulaski County Regional jail, police said. According to the report, Hogan was booked in lieu of $1,600 bond. He was later released on his own recognizance.
Hogan served as the baseball coach at UALR from 1986-96. He also spent time as sports director at Little Rock-based KTHV after concluding his coaching career.
UALR Athletic Director Chris Peterson told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette early Wednesday afternoon that Hogan is still employed by the university.
"Gary has paid a big enough price," he said.
The Trojans' baseball field is named in his honor.
Hogan's primary responsibility is fundraising and marketing for the athletic program, along with creating relationships with local businesses, according to his bio on the school's athletic website.
Hogan's first court appearance has been set for July 15.
