Man Accused Of Causing Lockdown At School


A meeting with the principal at Lawrence Avenue Elementary School got so heated Thursday that the police were called, the school was locked down and a man was arrested.

According to Potsdam Village Police, the incident happened at about 9:15 a.m. when 37 year old Toby Labier became angry during a meeting with the principal.

Labier allegedly said, "You wonder why people come into school and shoot things up."

He then left the building and officials locked down the school as a precaution.

Potsdam police, with the help of state police, found Labier and arrested him.

He was charged with second-degree criminal nuisance and disorderly conduct.

Labier was ticketed and ordered to appear in Potsdam Village Court on October 11.

The elementary school was in lockdown for about 45 minutes and then returned to normal operations.

According to police, at no time during the incident or subsequent police investigation were any of the students or staff injured.
