An Arizona State University professor is facing an aggravated assault charge for allegedly kicking a school police officer who was trying to arrest her.

ASU police say Ersula Ore was walking in the middle of a Tempe street near campus on May 20.

Court records show Ore refused to provide her driver’s license to a university police officer and was warned she would be taken into custody if she didn’t comply.

Police say Ore allegedly kicked the officer in the shin after she was finally handcuffed and an ASU police vehicle was damaged during the scuffle.

They say Ore was booked into jail on suspicion of aggravated assault and several misdemeanors.

Ore is an English professor at ASU. It was unclear Thursday if she has lawyer yet for her case.
