SAN FERNANDO (AP) — A  university professor has been charged with peeing on a colleague’s campus office door.

Prosecutors charged 43-year-old Tihomir Petrov, a math professor at California State University, Northridge, 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.

The Los Angeles Times says Petrov was captured on videotape urinating on the door of another professor’s office on the San Fernando Valley campus. School officials had rigged the camera after discovering puddles of what they thought was urine at the professor’s door.

    I wonder what a drug test on the urine would show???

    Excuse me, but I would think indecent exposure should also be an issue. And we wonder why our young people have such a hard time, but according to liberal media it is the parent’s fault.

    Seems like CSUN is having a lot of problems with both their students and their professors. It will be interesting to see how this all pans out.

      What about Russians? I am not Russian, but ask you to question your own comment.

    Correction: last name spelled Pee-Trov

    Actually he is Bulgarian

  7. A Professor says:

    He’s an assistant professor so he doesn’t have tenure. It will be relatively easy for the university to fire him.

  8. a colleague says:

    He could probably be fired for this even if he had tenure. In any case, probably no university will ever hire him again.
