A student's wallet was stolen out of her purse in the Music building, 1017 N. Olive Road, Wednesday afternoon, reports stated.

A professor reported a disruptive student, who he administratively dropped, attended his Spanish class held in the Harvill building, 1103 E. Second St., Wednesday, reports stated.

The professor told police the 75-year-old student had been dropped from his class due to too many absences, reports stated.

He told police she had missed the first day of class and did not receive the syllabus along with everybody else, which ultimately set her back, reports stated.

The professor said the student is prone to emotional, angry and belligerent outbursts during class. She shouts at him and frequently argues about assignment dates and requirements, reports stated.

The professor told police he had not been threatened by the student, but other students have told him they feel uncomfortable when she is in class, reports stated.

The professor said he does not feel threatened, but does not like having his class disrupted and having to pull the student out after every outburst, reports stated.

He told police he sent the student an e-mail explaining she had been dropped and she still showed up to class, reports stated.

When he told her she had been dropped due to too many absences and disruptions and should find another class, he said the student shouted, "No!" and walked away, reports stated.

Police pulled the car over, and the driver told police his license was suspended and had no picture identification. He gave the police a name, which they ran and no information came back, reports stated.

Police asked the man to get out of the car due to an odor of marijuana coming from the car, reports stated.
