Vadim Imperioli, 19, the son of actor Michael Imperioli, was charged charges of criminal mischief for spray-painting the Nazi symbol on a bulletin board on Nov. 21.
This was in connection with a series of racist TERROR incidents at SUNY Purchase College in New York. Here is how it is being described locally:
College officials said Nov. 21 that they were investigating the painting of swastikas in a dorm the day before. The vandalism was discovered on a bulletin board, according to Betsy Aldredge, a spokeswoman for the college. A second incident in the same time-frame involved the scrawling of "Black Lives Don't Matter" somewhere on campus; that incident is still being investigated.
In an email to the campus community on Nov. 29, campus Police Chief Dayton Tucker wrote: “I am pleased to announce that the NYS University Police has made an arrest in one of last week’s graffiti cases involving the rendering of swastikas.”
The chief’s email did not name Imperioli or give other specifics, and the college spokeswoman declined to provide details.
