NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Two Tulane University sophomores and a student visiting from another school are accused of setting the door to another student’s dorm on fire early Saturday (March 23), according to Mike Strecker, a spokesman for the school.

Three people lit a sign on Peyton Lofton’s door on fire just after midnight, Strecker said, but the flames were quickly put out. No injuries were reported, he said, and the door only had “minor damage."

The incident was caught on security cameras, according to Strecker, and the students were identified as 21-year-old Robert Money and 20-year-old David Shelton. Strecker said the third person was identified as Naimi Okami, a 20-year-old Brown University student.

All three were arrested late Saturday and booked into the Orleans Justice Center jail -- each with one count of arson, online court records show. They all appeared in court the next day, where Orleans Parish Magistrate Commissioner Brigid Collins set their bonds at $10,000 each. As of Sunday night, it appeared all three had been released on bail.

Strecker confirmed Lofton is the president of Tulane’s chapter of the right wing group Turning Point USA as well as participating in a Libertarian organization called the Young Americans for Liberty.

I admit to being curious about what the sign they lit on fire said.

I don’t generally have much truck with some libertarian views, but how libertarian can that be if they light someone’s door on fire?

Kind of goes against the “do what you like as long as it doesn’t affect others” mantra.

Lunacy fomented by our colleges - I’m pretty sure Louisiana tends to frown on felony arson. Hopefully destination Angola for them.

Pretty sure it’s a hate crime. A civil suit should be filed. Required: jail time, sensitivity training, probation, criminal record, fines, etc.

Yup! It's all shyts and giggles until these a-holes face felony charges. Felony convictions mean a lot more than not being able to legally own firearms. It's a really sucky life changer. That is, IF they survive prison. If they think their anti racism schtick will ingratiate themselves with their fellow inmates, they have another thing coming. In more ways than one.

I’d be willing to be dollars to donuts that none of these 3 will pick up a felony conviction in this case. They’re “nice” middle class college kids and this was just a silly “prank”, I’m sure the argument will go. The prosecutor will probably plead this down to 3rd-degree misdemeanor something-or-other.
