Police say former Carnegie Mellon University professor Jeffrey Hunker was arrested for drunken driving (DUI) on Thanksgiving, just over a year after being arrested for three DUIs within an 8-day period.


Police say Hunker struck one vehicle at approximately 7 p.m. near his home. No one was injured.


Common Pleas Judge Anthony M. Mariani called Hunker “a danger to the community” in August 2008, but declined to sentence him to prison when Hunker opted to check into a rehabilitation center in Virginia. At the time, his attorney said that he was getting the treatment he needed.


At the time of his initial arrests, Hunker was an adjunct faculty professor of technology and policy at the John Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management.


A faculty page still exists for Hunker on the university’s Web site, but his directory entry there says that he is no longer affiliated with the school.


Court records show that Hunker has a trial scheduled for February 17 on the first three DUI cases.
