A bumper sticker stating "I drive a weapon of mass destruction" was placed on a UA student's sport utility vehicle Wednesday, reports stated.

The student told police he left his car on the third level of the Park Avenue garage, 1140 N. Park Ave. When he returned, the sticker was placed over his chrome bumper. The student did not give anyone permission to decorate his car with the sticker.

The bumper sticker also gave www.idon' as a Web site.

No other cars in the lot had similar stickers, and police suspect that the student's car was targeted for the vandalism because it is an SUV, reports stated.

The student was unable to remove the sticker and told police he plans on having it professionally removed. The student expects that his chrome bumper will be damaged when the sticker is removed, and asked police if he could fill out a damage report.

Officers told the student he could fill out the report if his bumper is damaged after the sticker is removed, reports stated.

There are no suspects and no witnesses.
