A professor with Ball State University in Indiana called local police because a student refused to change seats in class on Tuesday morning.
According to NBC News, professor Shaheen Borna called police after the student decided to leave the class rather than change seats as instructed.
The student—Sultan Benson—posted a series of videos and commentary on Twitter as the incident unfolded, saying at one point, "Professor really called the cops on kid for not moving seats in the middle of class."
Ball State President Geoffrey Mearns called the professor's call to police "a gross error of judgment" and "an unwarranted overreaction."
