Spearfish school locked down Monday as a precaution


Creekside elementary school in Spearfish was put in a "soft" lockdown Monday due to a domestic violence incident.

Police say the precautionary action was taken after 51 year old Michael Earl Thomas called the school multiple times looking for a staff member.

A warrant was issued for Thomas' arrest on one count of simple assault.  He was taken into custody Wednesday morning.

There were no direct threats to the school or students.
