Well, it sure doesn’t seem like a good week for far-left college professors.
First, we had an Old Dominion University professor placed on leave for defending pedophilia.
Now we’re learning of a Purdue University assistant professor whose specialties include “positive emotions” and “parental involvement” who was arrested by police in Indiana, according to Fox News.
His crimes? Apparently he beat his wife in front of his 10-year-old son, who happened to be locked in a dog cage at the time. You literally cannot make this stuff up.
John Froiland was arrested by police in West Lafayette, Indiana after he allegedly beat his wife with the leg of a chair, according to a report in the school’s student newspaper, the Exponent. Froiland has been placed on paid administrative leave, according to Purdue spokesperson Tim Doty.
When asked the terms of his paid leave, Doty did not respond. Fox News said they reached out to the school for comment, however they did not immediately respond. It was reported that he has been banned from campus for a year.
Froiland was charged last week and charged with domestic battery, intimidation, interference in reporting a crime, neglect of a dependent, and criminal confinement.
