LANDER, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Catholic College officials say the Lander school's chaplain has been fired amid allegations of improper conduct with students.

School spokesman Matthew Brasmer says the chaplain was dismissed effective Nov. 19.

The termination follows an internal investigation by the college, which revealed conduct and a pattern of behavior Brasmer called unacceptable as a Catholic college chaplain.

Lander Police Chief Jim Carey tells Riverton media that his department is investigating but he declined to release details.

Brasmer says Wyoming Catholic College is searching for a new chaplain.
