Western Kentucky University officials have agreed to allow a "planker" from Bowling Green back on campus.
Tyler Webster, 18, an incoming freshman, received a letter from the university last week banning him from campus after the Bowling Green Daily News ran a front-page article about Tyler's planking antics.
To plank, people lie stiff in a prone position in random places. They often take photos of themselves planking and post them to online.
On Tuesday, Webster said he had met with WKU officials and "they're accepting me in." He declined to comment further.
Never miss a local story.
Bob Skipper, Western's director of media relations, confirmed that Webster is now allowed back on campus, but he said further information was not available Tuesday night.
Webster had been scheduled to meet with Michael Crowe, WKU's director of judicial affairs, to discuss the matter on Aug. 22. In the meantime, he had been warned that he could be arrested if he was seen on campus.
In an interview last week, WKU's chief of staff and general counsel, Deborah Wilkins, said that the issue was stickers placed on statues and artwork around campus.
The Daily News article showed how Webster and a friend, who run a Web site called Plankresponsibly.com, put stickers saying "This spot has just been planked" on the locations they visit.
"Defacing someone else's property is a crime," Wilkins said last week. You don't go ahead and put stuff on artwork."
Webster posted on his Twitter page on Tuesday afternoon: "Thanks for all of the support everyone has given me, It definitely helped on the decision to lift the ban."
