LAKE ORION (WWJ) – A busy day for police in the Lake Orion area as separate incidents at a high school leave a student and an unrelated parent arrested within hours of one another.
Police report that a parent was arrested at Lake Orion High School after using profanities and threatening the principle of the school on Friday.
The 64-year-old parent was upset that his son was being questioned by school officials about some missing property.
A school liaison deputy M. Simpkinson, says he tried to calm the parent down, but the parent continued the threatening behavior and he was placed under arrest – police citing him as a disorderly person and resisting arrest.
Within hours of the first incident, the deputy liaison was called to the same school where a 16-year-old student threatened to blow up the school allegedly because he could not get food from the cafeteria.
