Retired CCSU Professor Turns Himself in to Police After Accident Involving Student: Official

School officials said the professor retired before the investigation was completed.

A retired Central Connecticut State University theater professor has turned himself in to police after an accident in class in March and he was charged with interfering with a police officer and reckless endangerment in the second degree, according to school officials. 

A statement CCSU president Zulma Toro sent to the school community said Thomas Callery turned himself in to the CCSU Police Department on Thursday after being informed that a warrant for his arrest had been issued. 

The charges are connected to an accident involving a student in the Maloney Hall’s Black Box Theater on March 28, according to Toro’s statement to the university community.

The student was injured, but no information was released on the extent of the injury. 

Callery was placed on administrative leave soon after the incident while the investigation was conducted and he retired before the investigation was completed, Toro’s statement said. 

Callery was released on a $10,000 bond and he is due in court on July 26, according to school officials.
