Missouri educator pleads not guilty in assault case

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – An assistant professor at the University of Missouri has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge stemming from a campus run-in with student journalists during protests in November.

A spokeswoman for Columbia’s city prosecutor says an attorney for Melissa Click entered the plea on Click’s behalf Tuesday in municipal court. Click’s arraignment was waived. Another court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 16.

The charge was filed Monday. Click had a confrontation with a student photographer and a student videographer on Nov. 9 during protests over what some saw as university leadership’s indifference to racial issues. Click called for “some muscle” to help remove the videographer from the protest area on the Columbia campus.

The confrontation happened on the day the university system’s president and the Columbia campus’ chancellor resigned.
