Livingston county officials report the arrest on multiple charges of a Chula woman in what Sheriff Steve Cox called a potentially very serious incident yesterday at the Livingston R-3 school in Chula.
According to Cox, 34 year old Jennifer Graves was arrested for alleged assault on school property, tresspassing, property damage, assaulting on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, and possession of a controlled substance.
A news release stated an adult female was inside the Chula school when she allegedly began yelling and screaming at a school official. It's alleged the womanâ€”described as a parentâ€”was asked to leave school property, refused to do, then elevated her anger and pulled from a wall, the telephone being used to call 9-1-1. The report
indicates the individual allegedly attempted to strike the principal in the face; and
threatened to kill people. Sheriff Cox said the Chula school staff acted properly in accordance with training they've received and worked together in restraining the individual despite her screaming, yelling, threats, and attempts of assault.
Deputies arrived at the school and took the woman into custody but not before she allegedly resisted arrest, assaulted a deputy, and continued in what Sheriff Cox described as her foul and violent mannerâ€”even threatening to shoot one the deputies.
Jennifer Graves is being held at the Daviess-DeKalb county regional jail of Pattonsburg pending formal charges to be filed in Livingston County. Sheriff Cox said why an arrest is public information, a persons guilt or innonence is determined in a court of law.
