An associate professor of feminist studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara has been charged with theft, battery and vandalism stemming from an on-campus incident this month, the Santa Barbara Independent reported. Mireille Miller-Young allegedly took a sign belonging to a group of anti-abortion demonstrators, following a heated discussion about the graphic imagery on the protesters’ materials. Members of the group, which was not affiliated with the university, followed Miller-Young and several of her students to an elevator, where the professor allegedly scratched a 16-year-old demonstrator in the struggle for the sign that ensued. She allegedly later destroyed the sign.
Miller-Young did not immediately respond to a request for comment. An arraignment is scheduled for April 4.
