A University of Missouri-Kansas City student is facing charges after he sprayed a substance to the conservative political commentator Michael Knowles during an anti-transgender speech
Knowles was giving a speech titled "Men are Not Women" on Missouri -Kansas City campus Thursday when protestors disrupted the event. Authorities said that during the disruption, student Gerard Dabu used a water gun to spray a substance at Knowles, who was not injured.
Chancellor Mauli Agrawal said in a letter to campus Friday that the police had reacted that way because they did not know if the substance was dangerous.
Knowles is a conservative contributor to The Daily Wire and published a book entitled "Reasons to Vote for Democrats" with blank pages
