Warrant Issued for Professor Accused of Peeing on Colleague’s Door

June 20th, 2011 by Staff

NORTHRIDGE (KTLA) – An arrest warrant has been issued for a professor at Cal State Northridge accused of urinating on a colleague’s office door, authorities announced Wednesday.

Tihomir Petrov, 43, a math professor at the school, failed to appear for a pretrial conference hearing.

His failure to appear prompted a Superior Court judge to issue the warrant last week for the sum of $35,000, the Los Angeles city attorney’s office said.

Petrov was charged with two misdemeanor counts of urinating in a public place, an incident that occurred in early December 2010.

Investigators say Petrov urinated on the office door of another math professor with whom he was having a dispute. The incident was reportedly captured on cameras that school officials had planted after becoming alerted to the situation.
