Trial Nears for Severed-Pig's-Head-on-Chancellor's-Car Incident

+ More

A 28-year-old Southern Illinois University senior will soon get his day in court after university police accused him of placing a dead pig's head on his chancellor's car, sticking an apple in its mouth, and attaching a sign reading: "Wendler, stop pigging out on tuition $$!!" The pig's head and sign were discovered on SIUC Chancellor Walter Wendler's Crown Victoria last May. Garth Kiser was arrested September 8 on charges of disorderly conduct and harassment. Kiser told the Daily Egyptian he believes police traced an E-mail advertising the protest to his computer, but he would not comment on whether he was involved in the incident.
