LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they arrested a high school student after she threatened school officials.

According to the arrest warrant, it happened at Pleasure Ridge Park (PRP) High School at the corner of Greenwood Rd. and Waller Ln. on Jan. 30.

According to the warrant, 18-year-old Kenisha Harraway -- a student at the school -- threatened to beat up a female teacher, using sexually explicit language. When employees escorted Harraway to the assistant principal's office, she allegedly told the school official that she would beat him up as well, lunging at him, "as if to strike him," according to police.

She was then suspended and ordered to leave the building. The next day, a warrant was issued for her arrest.

On Thursday, Feb. 13, police say Harraway returned to the school despite her suspension. While there, she was served with a bench warrant, and allegedly became "loud and abusive" in the school hallway, using profanity against school security, as well as the assistant principal.

"I'll just get ROR'd [released on her own recognizance] and be out in an hour!" she allegedly shouted.

"This caused annoyance and alarm to students in the hallway and lobby," police say.

Harraway was arrested and charged with terroristic threatening, menacing, disorderly conduct, abuse of a teacher and criminal trespassing. They are all misdemeanor charges.

Police say the threats continued all the way to jail.
