Keaau High student arrested after campus lockdown

A Keaau High School student was arrested after an altercation and threats against school employees, and a campus lockdown. 

Police said the 17-year-old boy physically harassed and threatened staffers who were trying to detain him when they learned he was planing to fight a fellow student. The student fled after physically harassing school employees, which triggered the lockdown, police said. Police were called to the school at about 10:15 a.m.

They located the student at Herbert Shipman Park at 11:18 a.m., when he was arrested on suspicion of harassment, truancy and two counts of first-degree terroristic threatening. 

Police said after conferring with the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney, the student was released pending further investigation.
