NORTH CANTON, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio college dean has resigned, saying she spray-painted a traffic sign on a neighboring campus.
Kent State University cited personal reasons for Betsy Boze's departure Friday as dean of the branch campus in Stark.
A police report says security officials saw a woman defacing the sign at Stark State College of Technology on Feb. 15. No charges have been filed.
Boze told The Canton Repository newspaper that she painted a sign to remove an arrow that was pointing to an incorrect parking lot. The schools share some parking.
Boze said the paint job wasn't graffiti and declined further comment.
A Kent branch campus spokeswoman says the school doesn't condone such behavior. Boze had been dean since July 2005.
