MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

An MTSU student is accused of stealing the rainbow-colored American flag that was on display at the university library for LGBT History Month.

Jacob Lisemby was cited for theft Tuesday night. According to the university's website, he is vice president of a fraternity on campus.

The flag belongs to MT Lambda, a student group that has been representing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students at MTSU since 1988. The flag made headlines earlier this month when some students complained it was wrong of the group to alter the colors of the American flag.

The flag has since returned to its owners.
