Cal State Professor Motorcycle Madman


According to the Los Angeles Times, law enforcement officials in California are searching for a Cal State San Bernardino professor who allegedly led a double life as a drug peddler and motorcycle gang leader.

A reported six-month long investigation led a San Bernardino joint drug task force to raid the home of 43-year-old Stephen Kinzey; the search yielded a pound of methamphetamine as well as a number of rifles, handguns and “biker paraphernalia.”

Kinzey is a professor of kinesiology and has taught at Cal State San Bernardino for 10 years; he has a doctorate degree from the University of Toledo, a masters from Indiana State University and a bachelors degree from Wayne State University in Michigan.
The drug raid on his residence led to the arrest of Kinzey’s live-in girlfriend, Holly Robinson, 33, a 2005 Cal State San Bernardino graduate who was allegedly his business partner in methamphetamine distribution.

The professor was allegedly known as the leader of a chapter of the Devils Diciples, a motorcycle gang that intentionally misspells its name.

Cal State San Bernardino issued the following statement concerning the professor:

“To our knowledge, this is the first notice that anyone on our campus has had regarding this situation. Our university police department and the entire campus community, as relevant, will work as closely as possible with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department to assist with the investigation to help assure that all the facts are accurate. If the allegations are indeed true, this is beyond disappointing.”
