Baldwin City police removed a student from Baldwin High School at about 11 a.m. today and she was arrested.

School Resource Officer Kim Judy had the student in the back of a patrol car, attempting to calm the person down. Sgt. Greg Schiffelbein said the student had been "unruly," but didn't give specifics. Later, he released more information.

"An 18-year-old female was arrested for battery, disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice at the high school and transported to Douglas County Jail," said Schiffelbein. "She was pretty upset.

"Kim is still putting her report together," he said. "She's finishing it up and took the girl to jail."

Baldwin School District Supt. Paul Dorathy was not in the office today and unavailable for comment. Dorathy is the public relations spokesman for the district.
