An embattled University of Missouri professor has again found herself to be the subject of public scrutiny after a video surfaced that shows her engaged in a verbal confrontation with police.
Melissa Click, an assistant professor in MU’s communication department, was suspended last month, in the wake of an encounter she had with a student journalist during protests on the Columbia, MO, campus in the fall.
Another video of Click, obtained by the Columbia Missourian, surfaced a few days ago, the Washington Post reports. That clip shows Click in a gruff interaction with law enforcement during Missouri’s homecoming parade. The university’s interim chancellor this weekend issued a statement on the matter, saying her actions left him "disappointed" and "angry."
"Her conduct and behavior are appalling, and I am not only disappointed, I am angry, that a member of our faculty acted this way," interim chancellor Hank Foley said in the statement released Sunday.
