The UCF Police Department is searching for two suspects following a stunt that led to a classroom being evacuated on Wednesday morning.

The department tweeted about a suspicious incident involving a 6-foot-2 white male wearing a LeBron James Miami Heat jersey at around 11 a.m.

According to the UCFPD, the suspect — who is not believed to be an enrolled student — stood up in class and threw powder in the air a la James’ pregame ritual.

The classroom was evacuated out of caution and an investigation into the incident proved that the substance matched baby powder.

Authorities are also looking for a second possible suspect, who was described as an Asian male between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-7 wearing a blue shirt and carrying both a white and black backpack.

Thankfully, no one was harmed during the incident and classes proceeded as scheduled.
