NEOSHO, Mo. (AP) — A southwest Missouri college chief has been placed on two years of court-supervised probation after pleading guilty to a charge of drunken driving.

Crowder College President Alan Marble was sentenced Monday in Newton County Circuit Court for driving while intoxicated May 14 in Neosho.

Marble, who has been the college’s president since early 2007, was clocked by a Newton County deputy driving 60 mph in a 45 mph zone.

The Joplin Globe reports the deputy noticed a strong odor of alcohol said Marble had difficulty with a field sobriety test.

A breath test at the county jail indicated a blood-alcohol content of 0.11 percent, above Missouri’s legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Marble apologized in a May 18 interview with The Globe for making an error in judgment.
