IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The University of Iowa is reassigning the man in charge of the school's department of public safety.

The move follows an incident last June that just became public this week. Police say David Visin ignored an officer's orders to pull over as part of a drunk driving investigation.

Police wanted to talk with Visin's stepson, 33-year-old Sean Crane, about a hit and run crash. Instead of pulling over, Visin left Crane on the side of the road and kept driving.

The investigating officer says he "told Visin he thought he was lying and that Visin deliberately interfered with his investigation."

Crane was charged with drunk driving. However, Visin was never charged.

Visin will now be in charge of reporting campus crime and data to the federal government.
