Police: Girl arrested after threatening to kill teacher, school officer
A 16-year-old student was arrested Wednesday after police said she threatened to murder her teacher.
The incident occurred at Indianapolis Public School’s Coleman Alternative Academy at approximately 1:38 p.m.
According to the police report, a teacher told police the 16-year-old girl said “I’ll slit your throat” to him after having a disagreement in class. The girl denied saying that but did admit to saying, “I’ll sleep you,” which she confirmed was still a threat to his life, said police.
The teacher told police he was in fear of his safety and wished for the student to be removed from his class.
When the school’s vice principal arrived to the scene, police said the student refused to follow him into his office. According to the report, the girl began yelling and cursing, disrupting students and staff.
After being instructed several times to comply with demands, an officer placed the student in handcuffs. The officer reported she continued to resist so he had to “forcibly restrain” the student. Once detained, she said, “When I get out of juvenile, I’m going to come back and kill you…,” stated the report.
The student was preliminarily charged with disorderly conduct, two counts of intimidation and resisting law enforcement.
