BRUSLY, La. (BRPROUD) – A man from California caught the attention of the FBI after allegedly making a threatening phone call to Brusly Upper Elementary School on Tuesday, December 13.

Brusly Upper Elementary School was put on lockdown after receiving the call and both the Brusly Police Department and West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office responded to the school.

According to WBR Interim Superintendent David Corona, the man was arrested around noon Thursday, Dec. 15.

The school and surrounding area was thoroughly searched and nothing suspicious was found by law enforcement.

WBR Interim Superintendent Corona said that after the all clear was given, the lockdown was ended and students were allowed to go home via school bus or with their parents.

Because the call came from the 323 area code, the FBI became involved in this case.

The FBI’s investigation led to the arrest of a man who is reportedly considered schizophrenic.

Corona said that the man “will be dealt with accordingly.”

Corona confirmed that the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office supplied a helicopter at the request of the West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office.

That helicopter was used to search the area out of an abundance of caution.

A school resource officer was present at Brusly Upper Elementary School on Thursday. There were no reported injuries during this entire incident.

Brusly Upper Elementary School is at 601 N. Kirkland Drive.
