Sophia Nicole Rosing, 22, of Fort Mitchell, Kenton County, Kentucky, United States was caught on camera hurling racial slurs at Kylah Spring, 19, of Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee, USA at Boyd Hall on the University of Kentucky campus in Lexington, Fayette County, Kentucky on November 6, 2022. They are both students of the university.
The video also shows how Rosing physically attacked Spring. The Fort Mitchell resident was arrested by a University of Kentucky Police Department officer and booked into the Fayette County Detention Center in Lexington.
Rosing was allegedly intoxicated that day. She is also accused of kicking and biting a police officer and telling officers that she gets special treatment because she has lots of money.
On November 7, 2022, Rosing appeared in court for her arraignment hearing via video conference from the Fayette County Detention Center before Fayette District Judge Bruce Bell. She was accompanied by her attorney Fred Peters and her parents Paul Donald “Donny” Rosing Jr., 58, and Jill Algie Rosing, 54.
Sophia was charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place, third-degree assault on a police officer, fourth-degree assault and second-degree disorderly conduct. Peters entered a not guilty plea.
Bell set Sophia’s bond at $10,000 cash. She left the jail with Donny and Jill, who paid the bond.
On November 15, 2022, Sophia will be back in court for her preliminary hearing. Bell ordered her to have no contact with Spring, no contact with Boyd Hall and no consumption of alcohol.
Sophia’s uncle Glenn Algie, 59, is a University of Kentucky alumnus. He graduated from the university in 1985 with a bachelor’s degree in economics and political science and in 1988 with a law degree.
