(THE COLLEGE FIX) — A student at University of California San Diego has been referred to its Office of Student Conduct after writing communist propaganda on the Young Americans for Liberty’s free speech ball — then stealthily stabbing it with a pocket knife, causing it to deflate.

The suspect was led away in handcuffs after students tracked down the bandit.

The incident happened while the pro-liberty group on Friday passed around a petition calling for the University of California to loosen its restrictions on free speech.
