McLean County State's Attorney Jason Chambers says he will take a look at the alleged assault by former ISU President Tim Flanagan after all. Chambers had said earlier he would forward the results of a police investigation into a December incident at the official University residence to the Appellate Prosecutors Office because Chambers has a potential conflict of interest. His wife works at the University. Now that Flanagan has resigned, Chambers says there is no longer a conflict and the review of the case will remain with his office instead of a special prosecutor. Police concluded their investigation Friday and forwarded the case to prosecutors. Former grounds chief Patrick Murphy alleges Flanagan's arm brushed his chest and Flanagan's saliva landed on Murphy during a heated dispute over lawn aeration. Murphy was let go soon after the incident. He filed a police report against Flanagan well after the incident took place.
