He says law enforcement received a report that William Hubbard, Jr., had threated to harm his wife.
His wife works as a teacher at the school and Vardaman police and the sheriff’s department requested the lockdown be initiated as a precaution.
Hubbard was located five miles away from the school at his home and was arrested on a domestic violence charge.
Pollan says at no time were students at the school in jeopardy.
