Three weeks ago, details regarding Wisconsin associate athletic director John Chadima’s sudden resignation emerged, after he allegedly inappropriately touched a male subordinate at a hotel room party while Wisconsin was in Los Angeles for the Rose Bowl.
Now, from the Journal-Sentinel, the investigation has widened as UW police are investigating a third allegation against Chadima involving an adult male, which the police deem credible. The university’s interim chancellor, David Ward, has also authorized an independent investigation into Chadima’s behavior, headed by a former circuit court judge. No formal charges have been brought at this point, as the first two alleged victims did not wish to press charges. The authorities, though, have now put out a call for other potential victims to come forward.
It does not appear that Chadima’s behavior at the Rose Bowl which initially led to his resignation was just a “lapse in judgment” as he claimed in his original apology.
