NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A vocal faculty member at Tennessee State University who has opposed university leadership was taken away from a meeting in handcuffs and removed from her leadership position on the faculty senate.
Jane Davis, an English professor, was arrested by campus police on Monday on a charge of disorderly conduct, according to TSU spokesman Rick Delahaya.
The Tennessean reported that Delahaya said Davis became extremely disruptive and would not allow the meeting to proceed.
Following the meeting, the Faculty Senate voted to remove her as the chair. Davis said that the vote to remove her was illegitimate because the meeting had been called by university administration rather than the faculty senate.
