LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. -- One person is in police custody after a school resource officer received word a person planned to cause "some type of disturbance" at Lawrenceburg High School in Indiana.

The resource officer, Brian Potts, says a person matching the description he had been given arrived at the school at about 9:50 a.m. Thursday. Potts attempted to interview the suspect to find out why he came to the school, but he fled on foot, according to the Lawrenceburg Police Department.

After a brief foot pursuit, Potts apprehended the suspect and waited on assistance from Lawrenceburg police, the Greendale Police Department and the Dearborn County Sheriff's Department.

An official with the Lawrenceburg Police Department described the suspect as an adult male who was not a student at the school, but did not provide his name. He has been charged with resisting law enforcement by fleeing on foot.

The suspect did not have access to or threaten any students at the school, according to Lawrenceburg police.

Specific details on the information Potts received were not released.

No other information is available at this time.
