A California university professor has been charged with peeing on a colleague’s campus office door.

Prosecutors charged 43-year-old Tihomir Petrov, a math professor at California State University, Northridge, with two misdemeanor counts of urinating in a public place. Arraignment is scheduled Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court in San Fernando.

Investigators say a dispute between Petrov and another math professor was the motive.

The Los Angeles Times says Petrov was captured on videotape urinating on the door of another professor’s office on the San Fernando Valley campus. School officials had rigged the camera after discovering puddles of what they thought was urine at the professor’s door.

    Maybe Petrov coveted the other professor’s office, and was marking his territory?

    The security guys obviously don’t know anything about conceptual art.

    Overly literal understanding of the academic practice of pissing on each other. Although I have to say that if that is the worst thing the victimized professor has had to put up with in his career, he is very lucky.
