This Week's Duncecap Award ...

... goes to Indiana University Southeast Chancellor Ray Wallace and an unnamed student. According to a news report:
 Indiana University Southeast was on a brief lockdown Thursday after a student reported seeing a man walking on campus with a backpack that had a weapon sticking out of it, but police later determined it was an umbrella. 

... Although the student who called police mistook an umbrella sticking out of a camouflage backpack for a rifle, IUS Chancellor Ray Wallace says he can understand why. 
"When I saw the backpack in question, the student said he had seen a backpack and it looked like a rifle was sticking out of the backpack, camouflage backpack," Wallace said. "When I saw it when police brought it in ... it really did look quite like a rifle butt."

No, I'm not seeing the resemblance between the umbrella and a rifle butt either. The student should probably be charged with filing a false police report.
