UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. (AP) - A city councilman in the St. Louis suburb of University City is charged with misdemeanor third-degree assault for allegedly shoving a man during a public hearing.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1TkcDEw ) reports that 64-year-old L. Michael Glickert is due in court June 23. He is accused of pushing Bart Stewart at a March 22 meeting concerning the proposed construction of a new city police headquarters. The council later gave the go-ahead for the project.

Stewart attended the meeting with literature outlining a citizen effort to recall University City Mayor Shelly Welsch and Councilman Stephen Kraft. Stewart says Glickert took exception when Stewart put the literature on a table near the front of the room.

Glickert says he was simply intervening to remove what he called inappropriate material.
