Reg W. With Some Archival Misery.

So, while I was perusing the nutty drunk student post from yesterday, I found this hero also through the Smoking Gun site. It's an old story, but God it has given me ideas!

A professor at Caifornia State University Northridge has been charged with peeing on a colleague's campus office door.

Prosecutors charged 43-year-old Tihomir Petrov, an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at CSUN, with two misdemeanor counts of urinating in a public place. Arraignment is scheduled Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court in San Fernando.

Investigators say a dispute between Petrov and another math professor was the motive.



  1. Where is he from? Russia? Bulgaria? I wouldn't be surprised if he just comes from a country where this doesn't seem quite as crazy as it seems to you.

    You may not realize it or want to admit it (after all, it's not nice to accuse other cultures of tolerating such behaviour), but there are places where what he did is just what many people would do if they could get away with it. That doesn't mean that they won't get punished if they get caught. It's just that it's not surprising if even professors may behave like that when they think nobody is watching.
