Update 9:18 p.m. EST Nov. 7: Sally Woodson, the executive communications specialist for the University of Kentucky, confirmed to CNN that “Jane Doe” was actually Rosing. Rosing was originally not identified because she had no identification and repeatedly refused to identify herself, according to the cable news outlet.

Rosing was charged with first and second offenses of public intoxication, third-degree assault of a police officer, fourth-degree assault and second-degree disorderly conduct, according to Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government online booking records.

Rosing’s bail was set at $10,000, CNN reported. Rosing appeared in court on Monday and entered a plea of not guilty, according to WLEX-TV. She posted bail at around 6 p.m. EST on Monday, according to the television station.

A video posted online showed the student employee, Kylah Spring, repeatedly being called racial slurs before campus police arrived and arrested Rosing, WLEX reported.

CNN has attempted to contact Rosing’s attorney for comment, the cable news outlet reported Monday.

Original report: WLEX-TV and WTVQ-TV identified the woman as Sophie Rosing, but as of late Sunday afternoon the woman had still been identified as “Jane Doe” in official records. It was unclear whether the woman was a student at the university and a resident at the dormitory.

Rosing was charged with first and second offenses of public intoxication, third-degree assault of a police officer, fourth-degree assault and second-degree disorderly conduct, according to Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government online booking records.

A video of an intoxicated woman resisting and physically assaulting a student desk worker inside the residence hall was posted on social media, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. The woman can be heard uttering racial slurs, while singing and taunting others with more racial slurs and explicit language, according to the newspaper.

The victim of the incident posted about the incident on her own Instagram account, adding that she attends the university and is a desk clerk at Boyd Hall, the Herald-Leader reported. She was later identified as Kylah Spring, WLEX reported.

“This girl, she walked in about 1-o-clock or 1:15, somewhere around that time. She did not look like a resident so I did not open the door,” Spring said in a video posted to her Instagram story. “But when she came in she stumbled across the front desk and came in and started to talk to the elevator.

“I reach my head out of the clerk office desk and say ‘Are you OK?’” Spring continued.

At that point, the victim said woman began using racial slurs.

Police were called and Rosing was arrested.

University President Eli Capilouto said in a statement that the Office of Student Conduct is conducting an immediate review.

“From my view of a video of the incident, the student worker acted with professionalism, restraint and discretion,” Capilouto said. “To be clear: we condemn this behavior and will not tolerate it under any circumstance. The safety and well-being of our community has been — and will continue to be — our top priority.

“The video images I have seen do not honor our responsibilities to each other. They reflect violence, which is never acceptable, and a denial of the humanity of members of our community. They do not reflect civil discourse. They are deeply antithetical to what we are and what we always want to be as a community.”
