UCSB Professor Busted for False Imprisonment

UCSB Professor Busted for False Imprisonment

Santa Barbara – As if the UCSB administration didn’t have enough problems dealing with the recent public relations fallout following the April Deltopia Riots and the May 23, 2014 “Isla Vista Killings” shooting rampage, now one of the nation’s only universities to rank well on both the “Best Party Schools” and the “Top Research Universities” lists is faced with the fact of the alleged criminal behavior of one of its tenured faculty.

Kevin Falvey, 56, an associate professor in the UCSB Department of Philosophy with a PhD from the University of Minnesota with special areas of academic focus that include Philosophy of Mind and Philosophy of Language, appears to have lost his philosophical point of view in the early evening of September 26th, while enjoying the prerequisites of residing in University-managed faculty housing. According to the report filed by University of California Police Department spokesman Sgt. Rob Romero, “a female victim reported a domestic disturbance” taking place at Falvey’s North Campus Faculty Housing Complex.

Romero further indicated that UCPD had received a report earlier in the day from one of Falvey’s neighbors that an episode of vandalism had taken place. That report was followed by “another call later that afternoon reporting loud yelling and thuds emanating from the Falvey residence, accompanied by a request for police to check the welfare of the residents.”

Upon arrival at Falvey’s apartment, the unnamed female within indicated that while she had not suffered any physical injury, she was being held against her will. That’s all a law enforcement officer has to hear, and Falvey was taken into custody, transported to Santa Barbara County Jail and booked on charges of felony false imprisonment.
