Early this morning, Columbia police officers arrested MU employee Tyler D. Hack at the 1100 block of West Broadway for burglary and sexual misconduct.

Hack, 29, is listed as an assistant teaching professor in MU’s Parks, Recreation and Tourism department.

Officers say Hack entered a neighbor’s home through an unlocked door while the victim was sleeping. The victim woke up to Hack fondling his genitals.

“He recognized Hack because he lived in the area and he called the police at that time,” says Columbia Police Public Information Officer Latisha Stroer.

MU spokesperson Christian Basi says he cannot comment on the incident except to confirm Hack is an MU employee.

Hack’s bail was set at $500 for the sexual misconduct charge.
