A professor at the University of California at Los Angeles last year reported to university officials that he had concerns about the mental health of the student now accused of slashing a classmate's throat last week, the Los Angeles Times reported. The professor, who provided the Times with e-mail documentation, said that the accused student claimed that other students were distracting him while he was taking tests -- even though no such activity was witnessed by anyone. UCLA has acknowledged that it was aware of concerns about the accused student, but has said that it cannot discuss details because of privacy regulations.
