ISU Fires McLean County Board Member Following Domestic Battery Arrest

October 22, 2010

Illinois State University has fired a McLean County board member from his job with the university's Office of Environmental Health and Safety.

The Bloomington Pantagraph reports that ISU sent 48-year-old Robert Nuckolls a certified letter on Wednesday informing him of his termination. The action came a month after Nuckolls was indicted on criminal charges related to a dispute with a woman who said Nuckolls restrained and injured her after she tried to end their relationship.

Nuckolls is charged with felony unlawful restraint and misdemeanor counts of domestic battery and interfering with the reporting of domestic violence.

The Pantagraph reports that attempts to contact Nuckolls for comment have been unsuccessful.
