Additional Charges Referred Against Former UW Student
The UW-Madison Police Department has referred additional charges against former UW-Madison student Alec Cook, 20, to the Dane County District Attorney’s Office.
On Friday, March 31, 2017, UWPD was made aware of an incident between Mr. Cook and a female student. The incident occurred in 2014 in a UW residence hall. Further investigation has led to the referral of charges for false imprisonment and disorderly conduct — those charges were forwarded to the Dane County District Attorney’s Office earlier this afternoon. The incident remains under investigation, and no other information is available at this time.
