    School Board member is arrested after incident

    St. Louis School Board member Rochell Moore was arrested Wednesday after dousing a high-ranking school administrator with a pitcher of water.

    Moore was taken into police custody after throwing water and ice at Assistant Superintendent Charlene Jones, with whom Moore has long been at odds. The altercation took place about 3 p.m. on the second floor of the school district's downtown headquarters, where both Jones and Moore have offices.

    It's unclear what provoked Moore. School district spokesman Glynn Young said that Jones was extremely startled, but physically OK.



    After the incident, Moore returned to her office and Jones went into the office of acting Superintendent William V. Roberti, whose secretary called the police.

    When police arrived, they escorted Moore from the school district headquarters and booked her on suspicion of third-degree assault, a misdemeanor. Moore was fingerprinted, photographed and released. Police said they would seek a warrant today.

    Moore could not be reached for comment.

    Jones, visibly upset, left the building from the back door and was driven in a covered golf cart to her car. She referred all questions to Young.

    Moore was elected to a four-year term on the School Board in 2001.

    Last August, Moore placed a "curse" on Mayor Francis Slay, saying he would be smitten "with the sword and with blasting and with mildew."

    In December 2002, Moore wrote to U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, alleging that Jones and School Board member Amy Hilgemann may have dosed her with cocaine in a political conspiracy designed to "interfere with the election process and control the dynamics of the School Board."

    Medical records that Moore provided to the Post-Dispatch last year indicate Moore was committed against her will for six days in October 2002 for fear that she might be a danger to herself or others, and that while in the hospital doctors found cocaine in her system.

    One memo in her hospital file noted that Moore was "violent, incoherent, lacking physical and cognitive self-control" and exhibited "paranoia and persecutory delusions."

                  People like her are on the St.Louis school board...and people wonder why we have edumacation issues.

                  But the curse on Slay was freakin' hilarious: swords, blasting and mildew. Bahahah!

                    See, there is plenty of accountability in our school system.

                    We don't need more accountability, just more money.

                    That will solve everything.

                        Can I come to your work and throw water on you? What would your security think of that? If ice were involved, would it make a difference?
