First he was fighting with cops. Then he was dead.

A young Ivy League college professor died in a jail cell after he was arrested in an attack on police officers, who were responding to a domestic dispute at his house.

Yale professor Samuel See, 34, was arrested after cops responded around 5 p.m. Saturday to a disturbance at his home, where he was arguing with his estranged husband, Sunder Ganglani, the New Haven Register reported.

Ganglani, 32, had stopped by the Connecticut house to pick up his belongings — and violated an order of protection by overstaying his welcome by more than two hours.

The troubled academic then flew into a rage, fighting aggressively with the officers while they were trying to handcuff him.

“I will kill you … I will destroy you,” authorities said See shouted as he was being led to a police cruiser.

The assistant professor, who taught English and American studies, was found unresponsive around 6 a.m. Sunday in a cell at the Union Avenue Detention Facility.

He had taken a leave of absence from the prestigious university this semester.

Yale put out a statement saying the community was “deeply saddened” about See’s death.

“Our condolences go out to his family, faculty colleagues, and students, and his friends at Yale and elsewhere,” the message read.

The bucolic campus provided the backdrop where the two intellectuals, who were married last May, met. Ganglani worked as a teaching assistant and artistic producer at The Foundry Theater. He now lives and works in New York City, according to his LinkedIn page.

He did not respond to calls for comment.

Ganglani posted a despondent message on his Facebook page Monday, which read, in part, “There is nothing that can take love away.”
