Professor Who Blocked Student Reporters Charged With Assault

By Chris Ariens 

University of Missouri assistant professor of communication Melissa Click has been charged with assault following an incident in November in which she intimidated and physically blocked a group of student reporters from covering a protest on campus.

The Kansas City Star reports Click was charged with third degree assault, which carries a possible 15-day jail sentence.

Last month, a group of Missouri state legislators sent a letter to the University which called for Click to be fired.
