LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A woman who was called to pick up her son after he hurt himself at school was arrested for threatening his teacher and other school employees, according to an arrest warrant.

Laquita Leachman, 23, was upset that Shawnee Head Start employees had not called EMS for her son. The report says that he hit his head while running in the hallway on April 16.

Witnesses say Leachman and a co-defendant, Shelitha Leachman, came to the school and cursed at the teacher and her coworkers. They say both women challenged school employees to fight and Laquita Leachman said the women would come back later with "something for everybody."

The women left the school but returned later, yelling for the employees to come outside and fight.

Laquita Leachman is charged with three counts of terroristic threatening and one count of disorderly conduct.
