Twinsburg Teacher's Aide Charged With Resisting Arrest, Trespassing

The information in this report is from the Twinsburg Police. An arrest does not mean a conviction.

A 56-year-old teacher's aide at Wilcox Primary School faces charges of resisting arrest and trespassing after she refused to leave the school on March 12, according to Twinsburg Police.

School officials had previously said that no students witnessed the arrest and were never in danger.

The full police report from the incident provides more details about what happened that day.

At about 10 a.m. on March 10, Twinsburg Superintendent Kathi Powers called the school resource officer because the instructional assistant refused to leave a kindergarten classroom to speak with her. The aide had already gotten into a verbal argument with another teacher and "seemed to be having some issues," according to the police report.

The superintendent and the resource officer decided to clear the surrounding classrooms of children and then take the students in the class to lunch. The aide tried to sneak out of the classroom too, and became irate once Powers and the resource officer tried to stop her.

They explained to her that she needed to leave the school, but she continued to refuse. She became more and more combative, and eventually officers had to physically restrain her and arrest her, according to the report.

She was taken out a side door of the building and placed into a police cruiser and taken to Solon Jail.
