Average day in the classroom

Is this one of the few ways that a professor can get fired in university? I suspect it is.

LAFAYETTE, La. - A University of Louisiana at Lafayette physics professor was banned from the campus Wednesday and taken to the coroner's office for evaluation after threatening his class, university officials said.

Student Kacie Spears said professor Louis Houston lost control right after class began Wednesday morning and was yelling obscenities.

"Then he told us if we got out of our seats he's gonna kill us. He went on the black board and wrote "911 now", so we were really in fear for our lives," Spears told KATC-TV.

Spears said Houston slapped a student and then told his class he was God.

..."He's always acted a little strange, he's yelled and cursed before, and this time we waited for it to stop, but it never did," Spears says. yahoo.com
