Corvallis, Ore. -- Police have released the affidavit of the incident that led to the arrest of an OSU student accused of putting racist bumper stickers on cars.
Andrew Oswalt was arrested on Monday.
In the report, police said Oswalt and another suspect placed fliers about "white oppression" and "white pride" on 20 to 25 vehicles during a "Standing up for Racial Justice" meeting in Corvallis in June 2017.
Police said they then put bumper stickers reading "Racism is a horrible disease you catch it from (racial slur)."
In July, a student called police to report that she recognized Oswalt from surveillance photos police has released.
Police tried to contact Oswalt in December and finally met up with him in January. They said when an officer asked if he was responsible, Oswalt shrugged his shoulders and said "ehhh."
He is now facing criminal mischief charges.
Oswalt has also sparked controversy for expressing inflammatory views in an article in OSU's student newspaper, the Daily Barometer. He told KEZI he does not identify as a white supremacist, but as a "Jewish supremacist."
