Gov. Jay Nixon on Thursday ordered the Missouri National Guard to withdraw from Ferguson, where they had been in place since Monday. The move came just after a brief scuffle occurred between a state senator and a county spokesperson near St. Louis. 

State Sen. Jamilah Nasheed approached the Justice Center in Clayton, Mo., to deliver a petition with more than 70,000 signatures calling for St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch to recuse himself from an investigation into the police shooting death of teenager Michael Brown. As Nasheed tried to duck under police tape, Ed Magee, spokesperson for McCulloch, reached out to block her and she shouted, “Get your hands off me.” Eventually, Nasheed was allowed to enter the building with the petition.
