University student gets probation for evangelist assault

Posted by faithandthelaw on February 16, 2010

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – A Middle Tennessee State University student has entered a plea agreement on a charge that she assaulted an evangelist on campus last year.

The Daily News Journal of Murfreesboro reports that 23-year-old Michaela Morales received nearly a year of probation, must do 24 hours of community service and pay preacher John McGlone $80 restitution.

McGlone is with PinPoint Evangelism, based in Adair County, Ky. He and others from the ministry were speaking on an outdoor knoll at MTSU on Oct. 27, 2009.

A confrontation ensued after some students perceived McGlone’s message as hateful.

Court records quoted MTSU Police Sgt. Misty White as saying Morales pushed McGlone, who fell down a stairway and hit a trash can.
