LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A student at Liberty High School has been arrested after authorities say she assaulted a school employee.

According to an arrest report, the incident took place on Tuesday, May 6, just after 7:30 a.m. at Liberty High School, located just east of the intersection of Preston Hwy. and E. Indian Trail.

Jefferson County School Security officials state that 19-year-old Jasmine Taylor was in the hallway when the principal told her to go to class. Instead, she allegedly swore at the principal, and was subsequently told to go to the principal's office.

Once inside, Taylor became "escalated" toward the office staff, according to the arrest report, and both a school security officer and the principal repeatedly tried to calm her down.

Taylor allegedly cussed at them both and threw a cell phone across the office, at which point the Jefferson County School Security officer tried to arrest her.

Authorities say Taylor refused to comply, and after a struggle in which Taylor knocked several items off the front office desk and broke a computer monitor, she was finally arrested. But she continued to threaten office staff, according to the report, swearing at them and telling them that they were going to "get theirs." She also allegedly tried to spit on the school security officer.

Taylor then began beating her head against objects, according to the arrest report.

Authorities say she then kicked the school security monitor in the knee, causing a cut and some swelling.

Taylor was eventually arrested and charged with first degree disorderly conduct, second degree terroristic threatening, resisting arrest and third degree assault.
