Louisville woman accused of assaulting JCPS principal

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman was arrested Wednesday after police say she assaulted a principal at a JCPS school.

According to an arrest report, the incident took place just after 2 p.m. on May 23 at Roberta Tully Elementary School, located at 3300 College Drive, near Galene Drive. 

Police say officers were at the school with the principal, giving 51-year-old Pamela Bratcher-Tutt a warning for criminal trespassing. 

According to the arrest report, Bratcher-Tutt became angry, swore at them, then slammed a classroom door into the principal, injuring her. 

Police say they ordered Bratcher-Tutt to stop, but she refused, and they had to chase her down a hallway.

When they caught up with her, she allegedly swung her fists at the officers and tried to kick them. Police say they had to take her to the ground, and she was still resisting, even after she was handcuffed.

According to the arrest report, her actions caused alarm to students, parents and faculty at the school, and caused the school to go on "security lockdown."

She was arrested by Jeffersontown Police and charged with three counts of assault, one count of menacing, one count of disorderly conduct and one count of resisting arrest. 

Judge Sean Delahanty decided to let Bratcher-Tutt out of jail on home incarceration while she awaits her next court date. In the meantime, she has to stay away from Roberta Tully Elementary School.
