ASU professor slammed to ground by officer during arrest for jaywalking

An Arizona State University professor was arrested last month for jaywalking—and once campus police arrived, things quickly escalated.

According to ASU police, Ersula Ore—an English professor at the university—was arrested for walking in the middle of a street near the school’s campus on May 20. She was approached by a campus police officer who said she was jaywalking and refused to provide ID, while Ore claims she was walking in the middle of the street to avoid the surrounding construction.
