KENT, OH (WOIO) - Linden Adkins confirms that he has been fired from Kent State University after an alleged road rage incident that was caught on camera on April 15.
Adkins was an associate professor with the university.
Video that was shot by a bystander shows Adkins yelling at the driver of a minivan, cursing and asking "what kind of moron are you?"
Adkins says he behaved that way because he says he saw the driver nearly hit a student, and he believed the driver was texting behind the wheel.
Adkins faces menacing charge for the incident.
Kent State officials declined to comment.
