BELOIT, Wis. (WIFR) -- One of the students involved in three potential hate crime incidents at Beloit College has been arrested after investigators say he made a false report.

20-year-old Michael Kee has been charged with obstructing, disorderly conduct, and criminal damage after reporting that a wall next to his dorm room door had been spray painted with an offensive symbol.

Investigators say Kee was the second student victim to report the incident and later confessed to police that he had done the spray painting. According to officers, Kee saw how the community came together following the first incident and wanted similar attention.

The Beloit Police Department says the investigation continues. Both the police department and Beloit College say the situation does not diminish their resolve to investigate other reported hate crimes.
