A student, whom the paper only identified as "Brian" told the publication the officer asked him if whether he was "challenged" during a dispute over the student parking illegally. Brian was allegedly parked in a fire hydrant zone, but told the officer he had not realized it, according to the newspaper.
The officer the told the student, "Are you [expletive] stupid? Are you challenged?” the paper reported.
The officer attempted to reach the student by phone prior to the incident but Brian said he picked up his phone "the first time it was called," according to the newspaper, which cited the university's report on the incident.
The officer then wrote Brian a ticket and waited for him to return to the car. The officer allegedly asked the student whether he had special permission to park near a hydrant.
The newspaper did not specify when the incident took place or identify the officer.
