Bethel Regional High School entered a “stay put” situation Wednesday afternoon when a student turned violent, becoming a threat to himself and others.
Director of Personnel and Student Services Joshua Gill says staff contained the student, and Bethel police officers quickly arrived on the scene and took the student in custody. The police then gave the school the all clear.
This event follows a scare on Monday when the school entered a lockdown after receiving a false bomb threat.
