(USA TODAY) — University of Wisconsin police have opened an investigation into new allegations against a former athletic official accused of trying to fondle a male student at a pre-Rose Bowl party.

Chancellor David Ward issued a statement Monday saying campus police have been investigating the new claims involving former associate athletic director John Chadima since Jan. 30.

Ward did not specify what Chadima is accused of, saying only that the case involves an adult male and campus police will continue to investigate “all allegations of sexual impropriety or abuse of power brought to their attention.”
