El Mirage police reveal charges against 2 parents in school lockdown

Posted

Authorities on Monday released the charges against  parents who police said tried to force their way into an El Mirage elementary school last week.

Police had locked down Thompson Ranch Elementary School on Aug. 12 after an armed man was seen trying to get on campus.

The parents — two men and a woman — were arrested as they tried to get to their children to protect them, according to police.

Police said Monday, Aug. 15, that a 22-year-old man is being held on charges of misconduct involving weapons, possessing a deadly weapon on school grounds, obstructing governmental operations and disorderly conduct.

Another 22-year-old man remains jailed for disorderly conduct.

Charges are pending for a 48-year-old woman who was hospitalized with stun gun injuries from police officers who say they were trying to stop her from attacking them.

Officers used a stun gun to stop two of the parents as they tried to help a man whose own handgun fell to the ground while he was being taken into custody, authorities said.
