UNT class cut short by “mythbusting” student
DENTON A psychology class on “mythbusting” in UNT's General Academic Building was cut short Thursday evening when a student accidentally discharged a can of pepper spray.
Psychology sophomore Kate Miller, who was in the class at the time, said the student was showing a friend her pepper spray when she accidentally dropped it, releasing a small amount of the noxious gas.
Miller said the smell gradually got worse until coughing students in the PSYCH 1500 class decided to evacuate the room.
From the outside of the building, it appeared someone had managed to crack a window before fleeing the stench in GAB room 206. Students in the nearby lounge were untroubled by the commotion.
The remainder of the class was canceled.
