CORVALLIS, Ore.,-- An Oregon State University student, who was recently arrested for criminal mischief, is hoping to represent the student body.
Andrew Oswalt is running for an elected position for the Associated Students of Oregon State University.
In January, he attracted attention for his inflammatory views in the student newspaper. That same day, he was arrested for criminal mischief after allegedly putting racist bumper stickers on cars.
