EASTLAKE -- At noon Friday, police say a school resource officer and a teacher were allegedly assaulted by a female student, 17, at Kennedy Academy.

The female student had been separated from another female student who were about to engage in a fight and one was sent to another room to cool off.

But the 17-year-old in question refused to abide by teachers or the officer's requests to leave the room and instead, police said, swung her fist, striking the officer in the face and then striking a teacher in the head.

Once forcefully removed from the room, she continued threatening to punch two teachers.

She was taken into police custody and charged with one felony charge of assault and one misdemeanor charge of assault.

She was taken to the police station, processed and then released to a parent.
