It was a lively couple of minutes on the Central Michigan University campus when a deer jumped through a first-floor window and charged at an instructor.

Jeffrey Smith, who was teaching a class in broadcast and cable law Thursday morning, says some of his 23 students told him they'd never seen anyone jump so fast.

Smith tells CM Life that several students jumped out of the first-floor window at Moore Hall while the doe was at large inside. The campus newspaper says one of the students suffered an arm injury.

The deer was inside the classroom for about 30 seconds before Smith opened the door and it walked into a hallway, where bystanders led it outside and it trotted away. Campus police Officer Alan McArthur says the deer might have charged at its reflection in the window.
