A confrontation at a Rice Lake school Monday, April 29, 2019, resulted in the arrest of a Cumberland woman on a felony methamphetamine possession charge, according to Barron County Circuit Court documents.
A complaint filed April 30 identifies the defendant as Danielle A. West, 39, 1335 Babcock Ave., Cumberland.
Rice Lake Middle School officials called police April 29 to report concern “about the mental health” of the defendant. School officials said the woman called out of an alleged concern that “the school needed to keep her daughter safe and she was on her way to pick (the daughter) up.”
The officer met the defendant outside the school, with the daughter, whom, the officer reported, “had a very terrified look on her face.”
The defendant told the officer that the girl was being sexually abused by school staff and allegedly cursed the officer. She was taken into custody on a disorderly conduct charge.
Another officer arrived to assist, and he also impounded the defendant’s vehicle. A later search of the vehicle resulted in the discovery of just over two grams of meth and about 29 grams of marijuana, as well as a digital scale.
Court records said the defendant is free on $5,000 signature bond pending a May 21 preliminary hearing.
