COLUMBIA — Former MU employee Angel Anderson pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges of third-degree assault and resisting arrest.

Anderson will serve two years of supervised probation for third-degree assault and two years of unsupervised probation for resisting and interfering with her arrest.

A misdemeanor charge of assault of a law enforcement officer was dropped.

Anderson, a former administrative associate in the Nutrition and Exercise Physiology Department at MU, was arrested in May after attacking a neighbor with a solid-iron plant holder and swinging a bowling pin at the head of the responding police officer, according to previous Missourian reporting. The attack happened in a residential neighborhood of Centralia.

Anderson was charged with third-degree assault, assault of a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest.

Between the incident and her guilty plea, Anderson lost her job at MU and has received inpatient care for alcohol use, said her attorney, Christopher Slusher.

Supervising editor is Richard Webner.
