Prof Pees on Colleague's Office Door

Peeing One of the benefits of spending a semester in California is being able to read the Los Angeles Times every morning: Cal State Northridge Professor Charged With Allegedly Urinating on Colleague's Office Door:

A Cal State Northridge math professor has been charged with urinating on a colleague's office door during a dispute between the two men.

Tihomir Petrov, 43, is facing two misdemeanor counts of urinating in a public place, according to a copy of a complaint filed in Superior Court.

Petrov is expected to be arraigned Thursday in San Fernando, authorities said. The case stems from a dispute that Petrov allegedly had with another professor in the school's math department, authorities said.

Petrov was allegedly captured in early December on videotape urinating on the door of another professor's office in Santa Susana Hall, according to authorities. School officials had concealed a camera nearby after discovering puddles of what they thought was urine at the professor's door.

Update: The Smoking Gun has more.

Is this the academic version of the trickle down theory?

Is this against the rules in California?

At least he's not calling it "art."

Clearly, the other professor p---ed him off, or he's protesting for an open door policy.

"School officials had concealed a camera nearby after discovering puddles of what they thought was urine at the professor's door."

So Petrov did this more than once in the same place? Does this ratify the "men are like dogs" relationship theory?
