A 51-year-old rural Tonganoxie man was arrested Monday following an incident in which he allegedly threatened Tonganoxie High School Principal Jamie Carlisle at the school. The incident happened about 10 a.m. Monday, according to Leavenworth County sheriff’s reports.
A Tonganoxie school resource officer with the sheriff’s office arrested the man, who had come to the school to address issues of bullying against his daughter, reports said.
The man allegedly kicked open the door to Carlisle’s office, and when Carlisle indicated he was going to contact the authorities, the man said, “I may not take care of it here but by God I will take care of it somewhere,” the report said. The man was arrested for criminal threats to the principal and taken to Leavenworth County Jail.
At the time of the arrest, he also was arrested on an outstanding warrant for contempt of court.
