18-year-old George Sotos is facing felony charges after allegedly using a light to burn "a derogatory design in the shape of a penis" into the ceilings inside the University of Iowa’s Slater Hall.


According to an unnamed friend of Sotos, he "admitted to burning a penis shape into the ceiling tile." During questioning, the freshman reportedly "admitted to officers it would be possible he caused damage" inside the 500-student dorm.

Felony criminal complaints accuse Sotos of vandalizing the ceilings on two separate days last month. He is facing felony charges of reckless use of fire and explosives.
