Chicano Studies 08 Instructor Mary Romo told the man to leave the classroom after he came in yelling “what class is this?”

“He didn’t want to leave and he couldn’t comprehend what I was saying,” Romo said.

“He just walked into the class and demanded to speak to the girl that sat in the front row,” Romo said.

The girl, who is also unidentified at the moment, wasn’t available for comment.
