Man arrested after custodial issue causes disturbance at St. Germain Elementary School


St. Germain Elementary School went into lockdown Friday morning.

No one was injured and the Vilas County Sheriff’s Office says there was no direct threat to the school, students, or staff.

A 63-year-old male was arrested.

The Sheriff’s Office says dispatch got a call from the School Resource Officer at Northland Pines High School.

That officer reported a disturbance due to a “custodial interference incident” in the main office of the elementary school in St. Germain.

The Sheriff’s Office said because of the nature of the disturbance the school resource officer alerted the elementary school to go into lockdown.

Vilas County Sheriff’s deputies and a Wisconsin DNR Warden responded to the incident.

A 63-year-old man was arrested for causing the disturbance.
