LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 19-year-old Valley High School student was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly assaulted and threatened to kill a police officer.

Police say Hobbs was being escorted off of school grounds by an LMPD officer when he pulled away, assumed "a fighting stance" and told the officer: "let's do this."
Hobbs fought with the officer as he was being arrested, punching him in the face and threatening to kill him.
Police say Hobbs also punched a school security officer in the face before he was subdued.
Hobbs is facing several charges, including assault, terroristic threatening, disorderly conduct, menacing and resisting arrest.
