    Physics Professor Goes on Rage in Class

    Wed Oct 13,11:12 PM ET
    Strange News - AP

    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.

    After class ended, students left the room in Broussard Hall and someone called campus security.

    Houston was taken to campus police to answer questions. Officials then evacuated Broussard Hall and canceled all classes there while police searched the building. University police contacted the FBI (news - web sites), State Police, and the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Department Intelligence Unit for assistance.

    A bomb dog was also brought in to check for explosives, but nothing was found.

    Spears said it wasn't the first time Houston had an outburst in class.

    "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.

    Law enforcement officers transported Houston to the Lafayette Parish Coroner's Office to be evaluated for possible involuntary commitment to a mental health facility. In the meantime, Houston has been banned from the university's campus and his faculty duties have been suspended.

    University officials said in a statement they would make a final decision about Houston's employment once a full investigation into the incident is complete.

    It's a multi-purpose coroners' office. Serves as the local tire shop and beauty parlor also.

    Another John Nash - give him a Nobel.

    The natural sciences have more than their fair share of nutcases.

    Take an engineer and multiply a hundred fold and you've got a physics prof.





    Ad? :D
