Rosing, a white student, is accused of using racial slurs and making derogatory comments toward Kylah Spring, a Black student, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported. The arrest report states Rosing continued to use slurs after police responded to the incident at Boyd Residence Hall. Police also said she resisted arrest, biting and kicking an officer, then hitting three other people.
Rosing was fired from her job as a student influencer and permanently banned from campus in November. The university stated that she is not eligible to re-enroll, the Herald-Leader reports.
Rosing is scheduled to appear in circuit court on March 17.
