Autistischer Student wegen Kuss von College geflogen
A Waxahachie man who has autism was kicked out of college classes because he mistakenly hugged a woman he did not know and kissed her on the top of her head, according to the man’s mother.
Brian Ferguson, 20, was attending special-needs classes at Navarro College’s Waxahachie campus when he thought he recognized a young woman in the hallway, said Ferguson’s mother, Staci Martin.
The woman, who has not been identified and could not be reached for comment, turned out to be a stranger.
"He gave her a hug and kissed her on the top of her head," Martin said. "He's 6'5", so when he gives hugs, he'll give you a big hug and kiss you right here on the top of your scalp."
The school called it an assault, she said.
"And then they labeled it 'sexual assault' because of the kissing," Martin said. "They said a kiss is considered an assault."
(...) Ferguson’s mother said a college dean informed her that he was suspended indefinitely and no longer welcome back.
"He cried the whole next day," she said. "He got up for school, waited for the bus. I told him it wasn't coming."
