Professor taken into protective custody after stripping in front of students

Students of Michigan State University were in for a shock last week - when their professor stripped off during a maths lecture.

A student posted to Reddit, saying: “My math teacher just stripped naked during class and was arrested! Go MSU!”

The professor was placed in protective custody for shouting unintelligibly in the hallway whilst naked, and also underwent psychological evaluation. His identity is to remain a secret, however some students have posted his name on Reddit.

A student named TheCookieKing wrote:

“I was in Calc 1 at Michigan State University, and my teacher was always pretty eccentric, but today he went overboard. Half way through class he started screaming at us, swearing left and right. He then started slamming his hands on the window and pressing his face against it, still screaming. Eventually he walked out and down the hallway to the end, all while screaming. He then came back into the classroom and took off his clothes, except for his socks. You know someone’s crazy when they leave their socks on lmao. At this point everyone in class ran out. We were literally scared for our lives. The police took about 15 minutes to get here and during this time he continued walking around screaming.”

No one was harmed during the incident, but some students have been offered support from the school’s counselling centre.

Another student said: “As someone who is also in this class, I can confirm his eccentricity. He wore the same set of clothes every single day up until today and his mind never seemed to be stable. Everyone in the class could probably have this coming from day one, it was just a matter of time until it happened. He made the weirdest analogies, the most notable being about beating his wife.”

David Grabowski, MSU senior, told "He was screaming profanities and things you really couldn't understand, and something about religion. He was pacing up and down the hallway."

Students and other staff members at the university have their assumptions as to why the professor acted the way he did - one student believed it could be that his wife had left him.

The website Hyper Vocal contacted this student who shared his experience: "There was always something off about him. He repeated himself multiple times about subjects with no relevance to the class. And today he came in really depressed. Maybe his wife left him? Who knows. But then he just snapped. Went off about there being no ****ing god.

Huffington post have stated that some students have protested and some professors will submit a formal complaint to the university and the MSU police regarding the slow response time to 9-1-1 calls.

Hayden Borosky, who called the police, said: “The most concerning thing was the police response time. It took them more than 15 minutes to arrive. It could have turned into something very bad if he had a weapon on him. It was pretty infuriating to have to wait that long."
