A mental evaluation shows that the BGSU Firelands professor arrested for sending a threatening e-mail last week is not homicidal or suicidal.

A psychiatric services agency evaluated the situation for law enforcement officials after Donald Pryor, 36, an adjunct professor of biology and chemistry, allegedly sent a rambling and threatening e-mail to Christine Genovese, a full-time faculty member in the science department.

During his arraignment in Huron Municipal Court, Pryor was granted a week's continuance to hire legal counsel. His bond was set at $5,000 and he was ordered to stay off of the Firelands campus and away from Genovese. He was also required to complete a mental evaluation. The case was referred to Firelands Counseling and Regional Services for evaluation.
