A juvenile was arrested this morning after a staff member at Christian County High School received a bomb threat via email, causing students to be evacuated to the old middle school.
There was no evidence that there actually was a bomb on campus, but the school system and police treated the incident as if there was out of an abundance of caution once the email was received just after 8am.
Students were taken to the old middle school for their safety. Police and staff searched each classroom for anything unusual to be sure the building was safe.
The determination that all was safe came just before 10:50am and was relayed to media by Hopkinsville Police Public Information Officer Paul Ray.
Word came shortly after 11 am that a 14-year old female from Oak Grove was arrested and is now lodged in a juvenile detention center in Paducah.
According to police, she dropped a note at the school with a bomb threat on it and after she was read her rights, she admitted to emailing the bomb threat. The 14-year old is now charged with two count of 2nd degree terroristic threatening.
The threat was sent to a staff member last night and was opened at the beginning of the school day, according to school system spokesperson Heather Aubin, who says it was the kind of situation every school system hopes will never happen, but that the response between the district and police went smoothly.
Students were back in their classrooms resuming normal activities late in the morning.
A Hopkinsville woman is accused of assaulting a police officer yesterday.
Arrested around 3:15pm was 31-year old Georgina Washington of Hopkinsville, who reportedly called the Emergency Communications Center and cussed at dispatchers before showing up at the Hopkinsville Police Department headquarters to report a crime.
When an officer explained to her that what she was describing was not a crime, she allegedly began screaming and asking police why they brought her there. The incident reportedly lasted for several minutes before backup was called and that’s when Washington allegedly walked up to Lieutenant Jeff Alexander and started punching him.
She allegedly kept fighting with officers as she was being arrested and was charged with assault of a police officer, disorderly conduct and falsely reporting an incident.
