FRUITA, Colo. (KKCO) - The Mesa County District Attorney's Office will be charging a Fruita Middle School student that police say forced the school to go into lockdown April 29.
The DA's office has filed a juvenile petition against the student for a single count of interference with staff, faculty, or students of an educational institution. The charge is a class three misdemeanor.
Police say the school was briefly put on lockdown while administrators tried to handle the out–of–control student.
The student was taken to the police department and later released to his mother.
