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.
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.

Sickening to see a member of @FSUGOP a group I’m proud to be in have chocolate milk thrown on her for campaigning . In the state constitution it says students are allowed to express their point of view on campus. This is a vile attack. pic.twitter.com/Wd9RQSqCrt
