On the police report, the pair are described as ‘dating partners’ and Johnson is said to have appeared ‘worried’ in her demeanor. 

Both were taken to the North Oaks Medical Center for treatment before Johnson, from Folsom, was detained and charged. 

She has since bonded out of the Tangipahoa Parish Jail and has been placed on interim suspension by the university.

 ‘This incident currently remains under investigation, and the student will go through the proper university disciplinary process as well as the criminal justice system process,’ campus spokesman Mike Rivault wrote

‘The university process may result in disciplinary measures up to and including expulsion, but that is not yet complete.’
