Professor Claims Self-Defense For Assault Charge

Updated: Monday, June 30 2014, 01:15 PM CDT

A female professor at Arizona State University was thrown to the ground by a campus police officer after refusing to produce her ID. The professor has been charged with aggravated assault. But Ersula Ore says the officer is the one who was out of line.

The officer says he stopped the woman for walking in the middle of the street with traffic.

The confrontation is caught on dash cam video. And the situation quickly escalates as the officer attempts to handcuff Ore.

Professor Ore, wearing a dress, is left exposed after being thrown on the ground. As she gets up you can see she kicks the officer in the left shin.

Ore's attorney says she's claiming self-defense.

"Her dress was up, the officer was reaching toward her anatomy. She felt uncomfortable with his hands going there," says Natalie Duncan, Ore's attorney.

The professor is now fighting a felony charge of aggravated assault.
