College of Media professor Jay Rosenstein was arrested Monday night for “unauthorized videotaping.”

Rosenstein is to appear in the Champaign County Courthouse today at 1:30 p.m.

Rosenstein allegedly followed Ivan Dozier, president of “Honor the Chief Society” and former Chief Illiniwek portrayer, into the bathroom at Monday’s University basketball game.

Dozier told Campus Reform, a higher education news website, that Rosenstein, a longtime opponent of the use of the Chief’s likeness, tried to film him changing.
