LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville high school student has been taken into custody after authorities say he threatened to kill school staff.

It happened at Breckinridge Metropolitan High School on E. Broadway, near Barrett Avenue, shortly after 12 p.m. on Tuesday.

According to court documents, 18-year-old Justin Willen, a student, was "loud and disruptive in class, causing a total disruption of [the] school's daily educational process."

As a result, Willen was sent to the assistant principal's office, where he allegedly continued to be "loud and out of control," threatening the staff.

"I'll...kill you!" he allegedly said. "Let me catch you on the outside!"

He also lunged out of his chair, "going after" the assistant principal with a closed fist, according to authorities.

Court documents indicate that school staff "assisted" Willen to the floor, where he was placed in custody. He allegedly remained out of control, screaming "Kill! Kill! Kill! That's what I do!"

Louisville Metro Police then transported him to Louisville Metro Corrections, according to the report. He's been charged with terroristic threatening and disorderly conduct.
