Former Mercer adjunct professor arrested

A former Mercer University adjunct professor was arrested April 14 on charges of simple battery, according to the Bibb County Jail inmate information system.

The arrest came after Judy Tucker allegedly had an altercation at Cheddars on Riverside Drive with two female soldiers over a handicapped parking space, according to WMAZ.

Tucker’s son, Robbie called the two soldiers “black lesbian b*****s,” according to reporting from WMAZ.

A video obtained by 11Alive shows Tucker snatching at the soldiers’ phones, saying “Don’t you take a picture of me. You do not have the right to take a picture of me.”

In the video, one soldier can be heard replying to Tucker saying, “I’m pregnant.”

In the fall semester of 2017, Tucker taught “Fundamentals of Design and Color” at Mercer University.

Tucker is no longer employed by the university, according to Kyle Sears, Director of Media Relations at Mercer University.

“She has occasionally taught an art class in the past, but will not be teaching at Mercer in the future,” Sears said.
