Adkins sustained minor injuries.
INSIDE EDITION's Les Trent spoke to him today.
He said, "He was looking down, he wasn't looking out. That is why he ran the stop sign and he was about to run into me. I saw this girl, when she saw the car coming she didn't see it time, in just enough time to leap out of the way and leap back to the curb."
The professor has been charged with menacing but says he did nothing wrong. Still, local officials say he went way too far.
Trent asked, "Was there not a better way you could have handled this?"
Adkins replied, "Both what you would do or what I would do would be wrong. But in reality, is it very wrong with what I did?"
