Former professor said accused Florida shooter was his hero

A former Carroll University professor is charged with disorderly conduct after court records show he told Governor Scott Walker the Florida school shooter is his hero.

Timothy Hoeller appeared in Waukesha County Court on Wednesday.

Last Spring, Hoeller was fired as a physics professor after students complained about his teaching. Since then, the university says Hoeller has threatened a lawsuit and continued to harass university employees.

Authorities say last Friday, Hoeller faxed a letter to the governor saying the “shooter in Florida was a hero to me…” and “one school shooting is currently happening after another. This is not going away.”

Carroll University took the fax as a threat and sent out a campus-wide alert. WKOW
