Several Battle Ground schools were placed on lockdown Thursday afternoon after Clark County deputies responded to call of a person at Meadow Glade Seventh-Day Adventist Church who was experiencing a mental health crisis, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies responded around 1:40 p.m. to the church at 11001 N.E. 189th St. The church is next door to Meadow Glade Adventist Elementary School and also near Columbia Adventist Academy.

The Clark County Mobile Crisis Unit attempted to de-escalate the person’s aggressive behavior, a sheriff’s office news release stated.

The person, who was not identified, was arrested on suspicion of trespassing and booked into the Clark County Jail.
