Man arrested after entering elementary school

BRENTWOOD, TN (WSMV) -

A man who entered an elementary school was arrested in the school's community restroom Monday.

Williamson County Schools officials said a man entered Crockett Elementary School just after 12:30 p.m. on Monday.

A teacher spotted the man in the restroom and alerted the principal, who went into the restroom and talked to the man. The principal then called a school resource officer who took the man into custody.

It is still unclear why he was in the building. His name has not been released.

WCS spokesperson Carol Birdsong said no students were in danger since the man used a restroom students don't use.
