WACO, TX — Killeen ISD spokesperson Taina Maya has been arrested for misdemeanor assault following a domestic dispute.

Authorities say she was arrested for assault family violence in Waco the night of October 14.

While the District does not condone domestic violence of any type, it does strive to respect the privacy of its employees.”
