COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — For one Texas A&M University graduate student, what happened in Vegas didn’t stay in Vegas.

Justin Newman says he ran into academic trouble after The Associated Press published a photo of him in a story about a mobile medical clinic dubbed “Hangover Heaven” that aids Las Vegas tourists who drank too much alcohol the night before.

Newman’s name wasn’t used, but he said people in his college department recognized him sitting in the bus. He was wearing an “AGGIE Athletic Training” T-shirt.

In an email to the AP on Tuesday asking that his photo be removed, Newman said he was fired from his research position and lost a fall campus internship. He faced a disciplinary hearing, but said in a follow-up email Thursday there were “no repercussions for my actions.”
