Madison police said the school's resource officer attempted to get the woman to leave the building but was met with yelling and swearing. During a struggle, the woman allegedly spit on the officer, who then received assistance from a backup officer. The woman, who was taken to the Dane County Jail, was also found to have a stun gun and pepper spray, police said.
