MILWAUKEE (AP) - The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has fired a former police chief who was placed on administrative leave and demoted to police captain after he traded sexual Internet messages with a student.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/1ummNXS ) Michael Marzion lost his job after a disciplinary process and an independent investigation that found he displayed “inappropriate and unprofessional” conduct. The investigator said he didn’t violate school policies involving discriminatory conduct during the exchanges and that the student encouraged the communications.

The student said she believed Marzion engaged in sexual harassment in the messages on social media in April.

Marzion has said he sent the messages and demonstrated a “lack of judgment.” He became chief in 2010.

The investigator recommended that Marzion be disciplined or receive training on sexual harassment, or both.
