There have been a lot of protests since Donald Trump was elected president last week. Many of them have been violent, although some of them have been peaceful. At Ohio State University, an anti-Trump protester was holding a sign and making a speech, and a Trump supporter just was not having it.
Timothy Adams was standing halfway up a flight of stairs in the student union, delivering a speech through a bullhorn when Shane Michael Stanton came along. He ran towards Adams, shouting, “You idiot!” before violently shoving him down the stairs. Adams fell several feet, while a group of students immediately tackled Stanton. Police officers arrived moments later, escorting Stanton out of the building while people jeered him.

Stanton was charged with misdemeanor assault, and has been indefinitely suspended from the university.
