School em­ployee ac­cused of as­sault

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - ARKANSAS -

A Pu­laski County Spe­cial School Dis­trict em­ployee is ac­cused of cut­ting a woman who is en­gaged to the fa­ther of the em­ployee’s child, court records show.

Jeron­ica Lee, 31, of Hens­ley was ar­rested in late Fe­bru­ary on one count of sec­ond-de­gree bat­tery.

An ar­rest re­port said she works at Land­mark El­e­men­tary School and a Pu­laski County Spe­cial School Dis­trict spokesman con­firmed she is a lunch duty su­per­vi­sor at the school.

Court records show Lee is ac­cused of as­sault­ing 33-year-old An­gel Reed, who re­ported that Lee is the mother of her fi­ance’s child.

Ac­cord­ing to an af­fi­davit, Reed told po­lice she was driv­ing in Lit­tle Rock on Feb. 13 when she saw Lee in traf­fic.

They yelled at each other and both ve­hi­cles pulled over, she said.

Reed told po­lice Lee ran to­ward her and started “swing­ing her arms” in an at­tempt to hit her, the court doc­u­ment said.

Reed said she punched Lee in self-de­fense and that Lee be­gan to hit her.

Reed said “she no­ticed that she was bleed­ing and re­al­ized that Ms. Lee was cut­ting her with a sharp ob­ject,” ac­cord­ing to the af­fi­davit.

The doc­u­ment said Reed had “se­vere lac­er­a­tions.”
