Student claims professor punched him


STEVENS POINT, Wis. (AP) -- Lincoln County sheriff's deputies are investigating a college student's claim that he was punched by an assistant professor during a field trip.

The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point student Wesley Shaw says he was punched three to five times by the woman while he was sitting on a bus after students finished marking forestland in Lincoln County last summer. Shaw has filed for a temporary restraining order against the assistant professor. A court hearing on the order is scheduled Dec. 19.

Sheriff's Lt. Mark Gartmann tells the Stevens Point Journal ( ) that the investigation should be forwarded to the district attorney's office shortly.
