Man with brick enters Monroe Middle School

By: Ray Kisonas story updated October 26. 2006 11:58AM

A man waving a brick barged into Monroe Middle School and ranted about the teachings of evolution before being arrested by police Tuesday morning.

Middle school principal Ryan McLeod said while employees in the school's main office felt threatened by the man's bizarre behavior, he never confronted any students or entered a classroom.

....

Police rushed to the school at 503 Washington St. about 11:15 a.m. and took the man into custody. He was warned three times to drop the brick or be shot with a Taser. The man eventually complied and was taken away in handcuffs. No one was injured in the incident.

....

Monroe police reported the man walked into the school office and immediately headed down a hallway toward the principals' offices. When stopped by employees, he began yelling at them asking if he looked like a monkey.

They then noticed Mr. Wood was holding a brick. A teacher, an assistant principal and a secretary tried calming the man down, but he continued his rant about teaching evolution in schools and asked if the employees thought he looked like an ape.

"He had a brick in his hand and started shaking it in the air," Mr. McLeod said. "The police were called immediately."
