TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona State University has placed an academic recruiter on paid administrative leave pending an internal investigation into his arrest on suspected drug possession.

Tempe police say 28-year-old David Muller was arrested Friday night on suspicion of use and possession of a narcotic drug.

They say officers were alerted to possible drug activity by a security guard at a Tempe bar and restaurant.

The guard asked Muller and a male friend to leave after they were allegedly seen in a bathroom stall with a spoon-like object and a plastic bag of a white powder that later tested positive for cocaine.

Muller is an assistant director of admissions and recruitment for ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business.

He was released pending charges. It was unclear Monday if Muller has a lawyer yet.
