LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An 18-year-old is facing felony charges after authorities say he assaulted two staff members at a Jefferson County Public School.

According to court documents, 18-year-old Ladon Arnold was at the Buechel Metropolitan High School at the corner of Bashford Manor Lane and Wexford Drive shortly after 10 a.m. Tuesday, when a female school staff member confronted him about a policy violation.

That's when, authorities say, Arnold began yelling and threatening the female staff member, as well as a second male staff member.

When the staff members attempted to fix the school policy violation, authorities say Arnold started to fight with them, "to the point where he had to be physically restrained against the wall."

Arnold was charged with two counts of assault and one count of disorderly conduct.

A spokesman for JCPS refused to disclose the alleged policy violation that prompted the incident.
