Kimberly J. Allen, who resigned as athletic director at the University of New England this week, was arrested early Monday in Westbrook and charged with operating under the influence of alcohol.

A resident of Windham, Allen was pulled over while driving on Bridgton Road – also known as Route 302 – near Willow Drive at 12:53 a.m. Monday, according to Westbrook police.

The only other driving violation in the past decade for Allen, 52, was a conviction for speeding (75 mph in a 55 mph zone) in September 2012, according to the Maine Secretary of State’s office. Maine Bureau of Identification records revealed no criminal history.

A phone message left at Allen’s home Friday was not returned.

UNE President Danielle Ripich said she accepted Allen’s resignation Wednesday. A campus-wide memo was sent Thursday morning announcing the athletic director’s departure.

Reached late Friday afternoon, Ripich declined to comment on the situation.

“We don’t talk about personnel matters,” Ripich said. “Her resignation was her decision and we wish her well.”

Allen spent nearly nine years at the Biddeford-based university, serving as athletic director from 2006 to 2011 before a school-imposed suspension and 19 months in the development office as a consequence of NCAA violations involving diversity scholarships being used to recruit Canadian hockey players.

As a Division III school, UNE is prohibited from awarding athletic scholarships.

Sports Information Director Curt Smyth served as interim athletic director during Allen’s stint in development. She resumed her position as athletic director in August 2012 until Wednesday, when Smyth again was named interim AD.

Prior to being hired by UNE, Allen spent five years as associate athletic director at Smith College and three years at Rutgers-Newark. Both are Division III schools.

Allen was chair of the New England East Region for the NCAA Division III Field Hockey Championship Committee and has served on the executive board of the National Association of Collegiate Women’s Athletics Administrators and the executive committee of the National Association of Division III Athletic Administrators.

The penalties for a first-time offender convicted of OUI in Maine include a $500 fine and a suspended license for 150 days.
