Rhode Island has suspended freshman forward Jonathan Holton after he was arrested by campus police Tuesday for surreptitiously taping two consensual sexual encounters with female students on campus and later posting the footage on Facebook, according to a report in the Providence Journal.

Holton allegedly taped the sexcapades last fall, unbeknownst to his partners. When the two female students were alerted the footage was on Facebook, where 30 people reportedly were forwarded the videos, they notified URI’s student affairs office and campus police last week.

Holton averaged 10.2 points and 8.1 rebounds this season and was named to the Atlantic 10′s all-rookie team but now has been barred from all team activities. The 21-year-old faces two counts of video voyeurism and, if convicted, could receive up to three years behind bars.

“These are disturbing allegations that strike at the core of our commitment to make this a safe and civil campus community,” URI vice president for Student Affairs Thomas R. Dougan said in a university statement. “Respect for the rights and privacy of all of our community members is paramount. Campus police and Student Affairs are involved in separate intensive investigations surrounding these allegations.”

We’d advise against sending a friend request to Holton just to see the videos. Our guess is he’s already taken down the footage. Then again, this was a kid who thought it’d be a good idea to post videos of him having sex to Facebook.
