Ruslan Klafehn, the Student Association (SA) vice president for multicultural affairs (VPMA) and a sophomore majoring in political science, was arrested for driving while intoxicated on February 12.
According to the Vestal Police Department incident report, Klafehn was stopped at 2:06 a.m. at the intersection between Route 434 East and Center Drive — in front of Binghamton University’s main entrance.
A Facebook post by the Vestal Police Department said Klafehn was driving unsafely, and was found to have a blood alcohol content (BAC) higher than .08.
Klafehn is currently running to be the SA president for the 2016-17 academic year.
Pipe Dream reached out to Klafehn, but he declined to comment other than saying he had pleaded not guilty.
This is a developing story.
