A Florida State University student is being charged with battery after pouring chocolate milk on a volunteer at a Republican party table on FSU’s campus, according to WTXL.
A warrant was issued for Shelby Shoup, 19, by the Florida State University Police Department on Thursday, November 1. At approximately 4:20 p.m., on the first, Shoup turned herself in and was placed into handcuffs and taken to the Leon County Jail.
On Tuesday, October 30, FSUPD responded to Landis Green in reference to a reported battery that had just taken place.
When officers arrived on scene, they made contact with the victim who said she was volunteering at a Republican party table on Landis Green when Shoup began yelling at her as well as pouring chocolate milk on her on two separate occasions.
A witness told officers after Shoup poured milk on the victim for a second time, he began filming the incident on his phone.
The young woman accused the volunteers of supporting “Nazis” who are “killing my people.” When the Republicans told her Nazis were national socialists, she grew angry and increasingly incoherent. At one point in the video, the leftist pours her chocolate milk on one of the volunteers.
According to police records, Shoup allegedly poured her milk on not one, but two Republican volunteers, one female and one male.
“Sickening to see a member of @FSUGOP a group I’m proud to be in have chocolate milk thrown on her for campaigning,” wrote Hunter Pollack in a tweet captioning the video of the incident. “In the state constitution it says students are allowed to express their point of view on campus. This is a vile attack.”
When the volunteers tried to explain socialism to the student she became even more irate and began mocking them before storming off and kicking up a sign.
“[Kathryn] Judge [the complainant] advised that she was volunteering at a Republican party table on Landis Green when she was approached by a female who began yelling at her and then pouring chocolate milk on her on two separate occasions,” police records said. “Judge had a large chocolate milk stain on her shirt.”
“Her given name is Kathryn but she goes by Daisy,” FSU College Republicans told TheDCNF.
