A University of Kentucky student was arrested for attacking a black student worker and repeatedly calling her racial slurs in an ugly episode that was caught on video early Sunday.
The student, 22-year-old Sophia Rosing, was arrested in a campus residence hall just before 4 a.m. on charges of public intoxication, assault, disorderly conduct, and assault on a police officer, according to online booking info. A judge set her bond at $10,000.
Rosing, who is white, stumbled into the university’s Boyd Hall appearing highly intoxicated, according to the student who was working at the dormitory’s front desk.
The student worker, Kylah Spring, explained in a TikTok video that she tried to check on the woman but was instead attacked and pelted with disgusting vitriol, she said
In disturbing videos posted on social media, Rosing refused the help and instead tried to hit and attack Spring while repeatedly calling her the n-word.
“Could you stop, please?” Spring asked Rosing after she tried to take a swing at her, one video shows.
“Nope,” Rosing replied. “You’re a n—-r and you’re a b—h.”
“Oh Jesus Lord, I do not get paid enough for this,” Spring calmly replied.
“I got this all on video,” another voice off-camera said.
Spring and another student tried to place Rosing in a seat, but she swung at them and kicked Spring. She then tried to push a shopping cart at them, according to additional footage.
Spring said Rosing punched her multiple times, kicked her in the stomach and bit her arm while ordering to her to do her chores.
“The girl starts saying things like ‘Do my chores,’ ‘It’s not my fault that you’re black,’ ‘It’s not my fault that you’re ugly,’ and at this point she’s like singing the n-word,” Spring said.
Police eventually showed up and cuffed Rosing, but even that didn’t stop her racist tirade.
