DEARBORN, MICHIGAN: After being seen driving about the neighborhood naked and pleasuring himself, a perverted leading professor and former diversity chief, Michael Tew, was detained by police.

Tew, the provost of Eastern Michigan University, was spotted by a local truck driver who happened to pass him on the road near the college. As spotted in the footage, Tew was driving around without any clothes in his jeep while pleasuring himself. The incident was then recorded in which much to the disgust of the scene, the angry truck driver shouted “Hey motherf***er, why are you naked?” Following the shocking incident, the university was quick to suspend the faculty member on the grounds of misconduct as they await the result of the trial and legal proceedings.

The police took Tew in custody for questioning regarding his actions before releasing a public statement. In a statement from Issa Shahin, Dearborn Police Chief, the details of the obscene incident were confirmed. “They saw an individual unclothed driving down Michigan Avenue potentially fondling himself. Obviously with the top down in a jeep there was not a lot left to the imagination. It was in broad daylight in Michigan Avenue. I don't think it's appropriate no matter what field of work you're in.” Local news sources claim that Tew was a director of equality before serving as an associate provost and associate vice president for academic programs and service at the institution. He has not yet given any explanation for why he was driving about while nude and enjoying himself.

Tew has been working at the university for over thirty years, holding his highly reputed designation that has left people at the institution baffled on why he chose to exhibit himself in such a manner. Speaking about the incident, one spokesperson from Michigan University said to Daily Star, “We are troubled and concerned about the reported incident. The individual involved has been a faculty member and administrator at the University since 1989. Upon learning about this matter from Dearborn Police yesterday, the University took immediate action and suspended the individual indefinitely, pending the outcome of the investigation and legal proceedings. They are not permitted to be on campus during the suspension. We are not aware of any inappropriate conduct or actions of this nature related to their work on campus.”

Later, Tew was charged with two counts of indecent exposure—one felony and one misdemeanor—for aggravated indecent exposure. He was released on a £15,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on September 23.
