A Kansas University professor was arrested Saturday afternoon after he spread super glue on the lock of a Lawrence police officer's car and then tried to ram his car into police cars, a police sergeant said.

The 59-year-old professor was booked into Douglas County Jail on charges of aggravated assault on a police officer, criminal damage and attempting to elude an officer after he glued the lock at 4:08 p.m. in the 1700 block of Indiana.

His bond was set at $2,500. A KU administrator went to post the professor's bond.

Sgt. Ron Dalquest said that the professor would not talk to police and that police had no idea why the professor glued the lock of the car, which was parked in the 1700 block of Indiana.

When officers located the professor, the professor wouldn't stop for police and went through red lights, Dalquest said. KU police spotted the professor on campus and followed him.

Dalquest said "he tried to ram the police cars with his own car" at Eighth and Tennessee streets.
