Missouri Prof Who Shoved Students During Protest Charged With Assault

University of Missouri communications professor Melissa Click sparked controversy last November when she tried to forcibly remove a student journalist from documenting the ConcernedStudent1950 protest. She quickly resigned her courtesy post with the university's journalism school, and now she'll be facing third degree assault charges.

Members of the University of Missouri's faculty have called for her firing.
