Towed off

Brown College is a residential community of students and faculty. It apparently is also a haven for perpetrators of "malicious mischief," as Brown College Director of Studies Carl O. Trindle and Principal H.C. Erik Midelfort said in a Sept. 17 letter to Brown residents.

Someone managed to convince police to tow Prof. Reginald Butler's car from his 24-hour reserved Tucker parking space about two weeks ago, Midelfort said in an interview with The Cavalier Daily.

Butler was compelled to bear the burden of reclaiming his inappropriately towed vehicle.

According to the letter, Butler has often been inconvenienced by people illegally parking in his space. The letter said there have reportedly been past "angry encounters with students or guests who have claimed that space as if it were their own."
