While checking a room that has two entrances, a woman walked into the same from the opposite entrance. She wasn't carrying anything.

The officers asked the woman to identify herself, but she appeared to not understand English.

According to the officers' report, she refused to stop and show them her identification. She replied "no" to every question they asked both in English and Spanish.

The woman then left the room and began to walk quickly down a hallway. When one of the officers yelled the Spanish word for stop, the officers claim she began to run away.

The officers proceeded to chase her through the school's cafeteria, down a flight of stairs and outside into the parking lot.
