Authorities say Mississippi State University's campus police chief has been placed on administrative leave after being charged with Driving Under the Influence.
    
Starkville Police Capt. Frank Nichols told The Associated Press Friday that Georgia Lindley was arrested Thursday at about 5 p.m., but he declined to release further details.
    
It wasn't immediately clear if Lindley has a lawyer.
    
Bill Kibler, MSU's vice president for student affairs, says in a news release Friday that Lindley was put on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an unspecified investigation in Starkville. The release didn't mention the DUI.
    
Authorities have also been looking into allegations that Georgia Lindley left the scene of an accident in Starkville in November. Her husband, Starkville Police Chief David Lindley has said he will retire effective Dec. 31.
