Michigan State Professor Strips Naked in Class

Michigan State University(EAST LANSING, Mich.) -- A Michigan State University professor was taken into protective custody Monday after taking off his clothes in front of his class and shouting in the school hallway.

In a statement posted on the university website, the university said that a call came in to the local police dispatch center just after 1 p.m. “about a man in the Michigan State University Engineering Building shouting in the hallway.”

“MSU police responded and took the man, a university professor, into protective custody and transported him to a local hospital,” the school said. “No one was injured and the professor is not being charged with a crime.”

Students posting on social media named the professor, but the university spokesman would not confirm the man’s identity.

Monday afternoon a student posted a photo on the social media website Reddit with the comment, “My math teacher just stripped naked during class and was arrested! Go MSU!”

Another student described what happened in greater detail.

“I was in Calc 1 at Michigan State University, and my teacher was always pretty eccentric, but today he went overboard. Half way through class he started screaming at us, swearing left and right,” the student said. “He then started slamming his hands on the window and pressing his face against it, still screaming. Eventually he walked out and down the hallway to the end, all while screaming. He then came back into the classroom and took off his clothes, except for his socks. You know someone’s crazy when they leave their socks on lmao. At this point everyone in class ran out. We were literally scared for our lives. The police took about 15 minutes to get here and during this time he continued walking around screaming.”

Another student posted, “As someone who is also in this class, I can confirm his eccentricity. He wore the same set of clothes every single day up until today and his mind never seemed to be stable. Everyone in the class could probably have seen this coming from day one, it was just a matter of time until it happened. He made the weirdest analogies, the most notable being about beating his wife.”

The university said the school’s counseling center “has reached out to students who may have witnessed the incident to offer any support they need.”

Naked Carjacker Is Former English Teacher, Real Estate Exec

ABC News(PHOENIX) -- An Arizona man who allegedly went on a naked carjacking spree that left seven people injured and caused several crashes has worked as a real estate executive and was once a high school English teacher.

John Brigham, 45, was ordered held on $100,000 bond Friday for the bizarre scene he allegedly caused last Friday. Toxicology reports indicated Brigham had PCP in his system at the time, police said.

Brigham, who has a degree from Norwich University in English and education, according to his LinkedIn page, worked as a high school English teacher at Chandler High School in Arizona from 1995 until 2003.

“He was a stellar teacher,” Terry Locke, director of community relations for the Chandler Unified School District, told ABC News.  "He left to pursue opportunities in the private sector making a lot more money. The school was sad to see him leave.”

Brigham currently works as a senior vice president at a commercial property management and brokerage firm in Arizona, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Around 1:30 p.m. on Friday, police said Brigham was involved into a three-car crash. After Brigham got out of his car, witnesses said his behavior was bizarre.

He took off all of his clothes with the exception of his socks and was “yelling and chanting,” witnesses told police. Brigham jumped onto the roof of another car before carjacking a woman in a blue Prius, leaving the scene of the first accident.

A short time later, investigators said, Brigham allegedly caused a second crash involving five cars.

The wife of a man involved in the crash said Brigham was undeterred and tried to carjack other vehicles, even though he had been ejected from the Prius at impact.

“He got out naked, running all over the place trying to get into other people’s cars,” the unidentified woman told ABC News’ Phoenix affiliate. “When he called and said he was hit by a naked man in a Prius, I thought it had to be a joke.”

Four people were injured in the second crash, including a pregnant woman who broke both her legs, police said.

Naked Body Scanner Images Improperly Saved

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- The government has reassured the flying public time and again that any naked images of them at airport checkpoints would be destroyed immediately. But new attention is being focused on another agency of the federal government -- the U.S. Marshals Service -- that in at least one case has been keeping thousands of similar naked images recorded by its body scanners.

Back on Aug. 4, the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) was given more than 100 of 35,000 images that an Orlando courthouse kept on its scanner. The privacy watchdog group had filed a Freedom of Information Act request and went to court to obtain the images. As the debate over the scanners and the Transportation Security Administration's new patdown procedure heats up, technology blog Gizmodo on Tuesday released some of those images.

"The public should absolutely be concerned," EPIC's Ginger McCall told ABC News. "Very detailed and graphic pictures of people's naked bodies could end up out there on the internet."

While the courthouse scanners aren't as powerful and revealing as the TSA airport scanners, McCall said her group's FOIA request proves that the government is capable of storing and transferring images. While the TSA says it does not store such images -- and McCall isn't suggesting that the agency necessarily is -- EPIC's request shows that the images have been improperly stored in at least one case.
