USF AD Woolard has car tires slashed at UCF
USF athletic director Doug Woolard was given a courtesy car for the 98-mile drive back to Tampa after his vehicle was vandalized during Friday night's game at UCF.
The tires on Woolard's Audi were slashed during the Knights' 23-20 win over the Bulls, UCF Police Department spokesman Chad Binette confirmed. The car was parked next to the Wayne Densch Sports Center, adjacent to the on-campus Bright House Networks Stadium, Binette said.
"Whether this action is random or targeted, I'm hopeful the UCF police locate the person or persons responsible and hold them accountable for their criminal actions to the full extent of the law," Woolard said Saturday in a statement.
UCF athletic director Todd Stansbury drove Woolard's car back to Tampa on Saturday morning, Knights athletic department spokesman Brian Ormiston said.
"I want to publicly apologize to Doug," Stansbury said in a statement. "I'm disappointed and embarrassed that this happened at our facility. … We always encourage good sportsmanship and responsible behavior, and this was neither."
UCF police are investigating.
