IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- A registered sex offender faces charges after allegedly offering a seven-year-old girl a beer.

40-year-old Trent Vikel of Tiffin is charged with supplying alcohol to an underage person. Vikel was reportedly riding in the backseat of a friend's car when he reached in the front seat opening a beer and asking the seven-year-old, "You want a beer little girlie?".

The driver and the girl's relative told Johnson County authorities he threw the beer out the window. The girl's grandfather and mother reported the incident around 7:00 p.m. Saturday night.

Vikel was convicted of lascivious acts with a child in 2007.
