VEHICLE RAPE?

WEST NIGHTHAWK WAY

APRIL 25, MIDNIGHT

A man reported that his pickup had been tagged with drawings of penises, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

The man told deputies that someone had used window paint to draw penises on the windshield of his 1996 Ford Ranger, as well as on the other windows, the doors and the bumpers. He said profanities had also been written on the truck, but the report didn't describe what they were. He also reported that the taillights had been smeared with a substance that appeared to be petroleum jelly, the man said.

He told deputies that he and his friends often tagged each other's vehicles as a joke, but that he didn't believe this incident was the work of a friend.

He told deputies he would contact them again if there were further incidents.


FREE-EXPRESSION LESSON

UA AREA

APRIL 22, 7:02 P.M.

A University of Arizona student had no trouble coming up with a string of obscenities to berate a police aide, but he suddenly shut his mouth when confronted about his actions, a University of Arizona Police Department report stated.

The police aide told officers that she had been locking a door to the Modern Languages Building when a male passer-by told her, "Fuck you."

When the aide replied, "Excuse me?" the subject then said, "Yeah, you heard me. Fuck you, you fucking pig. I hate you."

The aide—who was concerned and a bit frightened—called UA officers, who found the subject nearby. As an officer approached him, the subject said, "Are you looking for me?" When the officer said yes, the man followed the officer outside, saying he was a student and providing a Cat Card as ID, but only after much prompting.

When asked about what the police aide reported, the subject shrugged and said he'd been "just expressing his opinion."

He told the officers that he didn't like law enforcement, that he'd just had a court case suspended, and that the officers were trying to "embarrass" him and "fuck him over."

But when asked about specifics of his encounter with the police aide, he suddenly went into "no comment" mode. Why did he feel the need to curse at the aide? "No comment." Did he hate all cops or just the UA police? "No comment."

The subject was referred to the Dean of Students Office.
