MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources records show agency employees watched videos of girls on a state computer, misused a state boat, physically attacked a co-worker and made inappropriate comments to other employees.

An Associated Press review of 2013 DNR discipline records found agency managers sent 26 letters reprimanding, suspending or terminating employees last year.

The letters represent less than 1 percent of the DNR's roughly 2,625 employees.

One employee viewed pornography on his state computer. One took his children fishing on a state boat. Another punched a co-worker in the back. Another told a co-worker he was undressing her with his eyes.
