Upon arrival, an officer observed a Job Corps staff member holding and trying to calm down a female student who was screaming and trying to get loose, along with an unknown male holding her also.
The staff members informed the officers that the female student acting out of control was the female portion of the call. The officers removed the student from the area in an attempt to calm her down. They walked her over to a bench to take her out of view of the other students watching the commotion. Once she sat and calmed down, she stated that she and her boyfriend had got into a verbal altercation, and she had thrown her phone during the incident. The officer in charge asked her partner to sit with the female subject while she went to speak with staff members to inquire about the male student’s location.
While the officer spoke with three staff members, they confirmed the statement the subject gave the officers about the altercation. The staff members had also advised the officer that the young man that had been holding her arm when they arrived was the male subject. The staff members also said that when they tried to calm her down, she began to act belligerent and out of control, cursing at them. At one point during the incident, the female subject bit one of the female staff members on her arm. The staff member showed the officer the bite mark. However, the skin was not broken. A male staff member stated that the female subject had kicked him in his groin twice and was slapping him during the incident.
