The son of former National Security Adviser Susan Rice filed charges against one of his fellow Stanford University students for allegedly assaulting him during a rally for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
John Rice-Cameron, the president of the Stanford College Republicans (SCR), told police Melinda Hernandez physically pushed him during an event the SCR was holding Tuesday to promote support of Kavanaugh, who was confirmed to the nation's highest court last weekend.
According to The Stanford Daily, police were called to the scene and battery charges were filed against Hernandez.
"She got in my face and proceeded to hit me in the chest area and push me back forcefully," Rice told the student newspaper. "Nobody should be assaulted on campus, under any circumstances."
An anonymous witness to the alleged event told The Daily that Hernandez was aggressive.
"She kept getting in his face, louder and louder — she walked straight towards him and invaded his personal space and definitely put her hands on him," the witness said.
At the same event, videos taken by SCR members showed another student ripping pro-Kavanaugh posters off the group's table.
"[Tuesday's] events are yet another example of the violence and thuggery that is increasingly common from the unhinged left," SCR told Fox News.
Susan Rice, a Democrat, served in the Obama administration, first as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and then as national security adviser. She is considering running against Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, in the 2020 election.
