BLOOMINGTON - A former Illinois State University President says he's innocent of charges filed against him by a former groundskeeper. Timothy Flanagan made his first appearance in court Wednesday morning.

At the arraignment hearing, Flanagan pled not guilty to charges of disorderly conduct. According to police reports, Flanagan was involved in a confrontation with Patrick Murphy. Murphy says Flanagan yelled insults and spat in his face. Murphy also claims Flanagan hit him with his arm while he was gesturing. Flanagan denies that he spat at or hit Murphy.

"We have entered a plea of not guilty, we are still awaiting discovery and will defend vigorously this case." says Stephanie Wong, Flanagan's attorney.

McLean County State's Attorney Jason Chambers tells WMBD 31, "But on any case, we could add or remove charges at any time and it's always something that's a possibility."

Flanagan's pretrial hearing is scheduled for May 28th at 11:00AM. If convicted, Flanagan faces up to 30 days in jail or a 15-hundred dollar fine.
