Wrap: Senator Paul Wieland has filed a complaint with the University of Missouri reguarding the actions of Professor Melissa Click during protests late last year.

Wieland sent a staff member down last night to the university to file the complaint.

During Missouri's Joint Committee on Education last night, Wieland went on to say that he was considering filling a complaint against former head football coach, Gary Pinkel, after Pinkel said he would support his players decisions not to participate in the BYU game last fall.

As of Thursday afternoon, Wieland has not decided if he will continue with the compliant against Pinkel.
