MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The University of Wisconsin-Madison says a third allegation of misconduct has surfaced against a former top athletic official.

Chancellor David Ward said in a statement Thursday that university police are investigating a new allegation involving John Chadima (CHAD’-ih-muh). Ward says the UW Police Department believes the allegation is credible.

A message left with Chadima’s attorney, Charles Giesen, was not immediately returned.

Chadima resigned after he was accused of sexually assaulting a male student at a Rose Bowl party. Ward says the latest allegation involves Chadima and an adult male.

Ward is urging anyone who many have been a victim or who has information about inappropriate conduct by Chadima to contact university police.

Online court records do not show that Chadima faces any criminal charges.
