A sleeping Eastern Michigan University student may have been too tired to stay awake in class, but found the energy to report his professor for waking him up with a kick.
EMU Police Chief Bob Heighes tells AnnArbor.com (http://bit.ly/Ql2YZ8) the student was asleep in a 3 p.m. class in Pray-Harrold Hall on Monday, with his legs stretched out and a hat pulled down over his eyes.
The student told police the professor kicked him in the feet to wake him up.
Heighes says the professor at the Ypsilanti school told police "he believed the student was sleeping and asked him to wake up."
Heighes says the investigation is closed because the student does not want to press charges. He simply wants to change into a different class.
