Videos of UO instructor in confrontation with student group circulate on social media

A pair of videos displaying an argument between University of Oregon adjunct law instructor James Olmsted and students protesters started to make the rounds on social media late Thursday evening. The two videos show different angles of a heated altercation between Olmsted and a student he pushed out of the way.

According to the YouTube descriptions, the videos take place near the EMU amphitheater at a mock border check-in organized by Students Against Imperialism  — a group in support of equitable treatment along the United States-Mexican border which recently combine with the group, Students for Palestinian Liberation.

It is unclear how the dispute started and ended, as both videos capture only the middle of the quarrel.
