Professor Strips Naked While Teaching Accounting Class

Some Georgia business college students recently got extra lessons in criminal law, anatomy and potentially civil liability. The lesson came by way of part-time instructor, Raymond Devaughn Taylor, who inexplicably took off his clothes off while teaching at Kennesaw State University. He was arrested and charged with public indecency after a student reported the incident.

What must the students have been thinking as each layer of clothing came off? "I would think he's on drugs or something crazy," said Buddy Johnson, a student from the class.

Raymond Devaughn Taylor, 57, was arrested and released from jail on $5,000 bond. His mugshot is of legendary caliber, you should definitely take a look. University officials have said that Taylor no longer will be teaching at the college. "We took this issue very seriously when the student complaint was registered," said Arlethia Perry-Johnson, vice president of external affairs for the university.

Public indecency is more commonly known in criminal law as indecent exposure. Indecent exposure laws make it a crime to purposefully display one's genitals in public, causing others to be alarmed or offended. Indecent exposure is often committed for the sexual gratification of the offender, and may reach the level of a sexual assault if any physical contact is made.

Or because the offender is on drugs.

"Kennesaw State fosters an environment where students are encouraged to report inappropriate and unethical behavior," said the university's interim provost, W. Ken Harmon, in a statement, ABC reports.

No word yet on whether Taylor had some sort of point he was trying to demonstrate or if he's just a weirdo. Although, again, if you look at the mugshot, I'm guessing you'll say its drugs.
