Police escort White Owl from KU campus on first day of classes

August 22, 2011

A 64-year-old Lawrence man, known by the nickname White Owl, who was banned from the Kansas University campus in 2009 was escorted from campus Monday afternoon, a KU spokeswoman said.

Jimmy Neil Tucker was given notice to appear in municipal court for criminal trespassing after he was on campus around noon Monday, the first day of classes, said Jill Jess, a KU spokeswoman. Tucker is recognized for his long white beard and in the past frequently attended KU sporting events,

Jess said Tucker was banned from campus in November 2009 for five years as a result of a series of complaints filed against him.

Around that time Tucker had several legal issues, including a 2009 theft case in which he was accused of stealing three books from Anschutz Library. He also pleaded no contest in Douglas County District Court in January 2010 to violating a protective order, according to court records.

He stole from one of the campus libraries, which means he stole from the students and the people of Kansas. He harasses women and he lies. The police made the right decision. Some folks appear to see this old phony as another Socrates, however. What chumps they are.

The kid says he was wonderful entertainment at the football games. But if he ever made at pass at my kid I would come up and pluck all the gray hair out of his face one by one....with a railroad spike.

It seems like I heard some pretty bad stories, but I can't remember any.

He should just start a non-profit charitable organization.

"I wonder if TOB and Riverdrifter have bona fides to travel Wescoe beach-esque"

Nah. I got out of the stealing and violating protective orders years ago. You know, before I was in my 60s.

People make him up to be some kind of celebrity. Don't think he is playing with a full deck.
