Monday, February 5th, Mead High students were stranded in the cafeteria when their bus was unable to make its usual route.

Turns out there was a domestic disturbance in Eagle Crest trailer park that made attempts to enter the neighborhood futile.

Sophomore Kira Schott, who usually rides the Eagle Crest bus, explained that “There was a domestic dispute and he had an illegal firearm, and he blockaded himself inside of his home and threatened to commit suicide. Some people couldn’t get back to their homes that night, so Red Cross and Rocky Mountain Christian Church were there to help and provide shelter.”

“People who usually ride the Eaglecrest were taken into the cafeteria and told that the bus would leave later, but most people got their parents to pick them up” she continued.

It is assumed that narcotics were involved, but original theories that there was a meth lab bust were proven inaccurate. The situation was resolved peacefully by police around noon on Tuesday. Nobody was harmed in the altercation and as of today, Thursday February 8th, all residents are comfortably returned to their homes.

    About the incident that happened on eagle crest February 5, 2018 as being one of the students in the cafeteria seeing people forcing their parents to pick them up while only staying at the school 15 minutes later showed me how awful some people are for putting their parents at risk just to take them home near a crime that is being committed with a weapon that does not have the safety switch. It enrages me to see people so selfish not thinking for their parents safety or their own.
