LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A student was arrested at Jeffersontown High School Thursday morning, after she allegedly got into a fight with another student and assaulted a police officer.
It happened shortly after 8 a.m. at the high school, which is located on Old Six Mile Lane, near the intersection of Taylorsville Road and Patti Lane.
Police say 19-year-old Tiffany Woodard was arguing with another student in one of the classrooms. According to the arrest report, she was cursing so loudly she could be heard down the hallway.
When officers arrived at the classroom, they allegedly saw the teacher trying to hold Woodard back. As an officer was trying to escort some students out of the classroom, police say Woodard threw a full water bottle at the officer, hitting the officer in the back of the head.
Woodard was arrested as a result -- but police say she didn't want to go quietly, attempting to pull away from the arresting officer several times.
She was charged with third degree assault, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, according to police.
