RONAN — A man is behind bars in Polson following an incident that prompted a brief lockdown Thursday at K. William Harvey School in Ronan.

The school was locked down at about 2:15 p.m. because of an incident involving a low-speed pursuit by officers of a man riding a miniature motorcycle carrying a 3-year-old child.

Lake County Sheriff Don Bell says law enforcement attempted to stop the man – 21-year-old D’Andre Moses, of Rona -- near the intersection of Sixth Avenue West and Round Butte Road but he failed to yield.

Moses drove to K. William Harvey School, left the roadway, and began driving the motorcycle across the playground while students were out at recess, according to Sheriff Bell.

Shortly after the lockdown, Moses was arrested without harm to him or the child. Moses was charged with criminal endangerment and was taken to the Lake County Jail.
