(KMOV.com) – The University of Missouri communications professor who confronted a student journalist for recording a protest has been suspended, the Board of Curators announced Wednesday.

Melissa Click was caught on camera ‘calling for some muscle,’ to stop a student journalist from recording a student protest in November. The incident occurred during a series of protests over accusations of racism on campus.

Click was recently charged with misdemeanor assault in connection with the incident. Many have called for her to be fired.
