PORTSMOUTH, R.I. (AP) - Roger Williams University’s head of student conduct is facing DUI charges stemming from a crash in Middletown last month.

Police say Heidi Hartzell was arrested in Portsmouth on Dec. 28.

Police say an SUV driver was hit by another vehicle and followed Hartzell until police could find her and pull her over.

Hartzell has been charged with driving under the influence failing to stop for an accident, both misdemeanors. Her attorney tells WPRI-TV Hartzell has no comment on the charges.

The university on Monday said it doesn’t comment on specific personnel matters. The university will conduct a thorough internal investigation before taking action.
