Fake ‘Hate Crime’ Report at Beloit College Leads to Arrest

My State Line, February 1, 2017


Twenty-year-old Michael Kee was arrested and charged with Obstructing, Disorderly Conduct, and Criminal Damage, for allegedly spray painting an anti-Muslim threat and symbol on his door and a wall near his dorm.  Police say he then reported it as a threat against his religion and ethnicity.

Police say his motive was a reaction to anti-Semitic message reportedly slid under the door of a Jewish student on campus, saying Kee had “observed how the Beloit College community had come together after the first reported incident and wanted similar attention.”
