Officials at Boise High School sent an alert to parents Tuesday afternoon, informing them that the school had been locked down for more than 1 1/2 hours earlier that day.
The lockdown was due to a "student issue that required a response by Boise police," according to the email sent to parents.
Boise police confirmed a 17-year-old Boise High student had threatened to harm himself earlier in the day and stood on the roof of the west end of the downtown school building before being talked down by police negotiators.
At no time did the student threaten to harm anyone else, according to police. Ultimately, the student was led away by police, who escorted him to a mental health evaluation.
"I want to compliment our students and staff members for reacting responsibly, thoroughly and professionally to this situation," wrote Boise High Principal Robb Thompson to parents. "Our first priority each and every school day is the safety and security of our students and staff members."
The arrest came after election auditors in Nez Perce County and Asotin County in Washington discovered Christopher Billups, 62, of Lapwai, appeared to have voted at a polling site on the Nez Perce Indian Reservation after already mailing in a ballot to Washington.
"When a girl has gone through what my client went through, standard operating procedure for a case like this could have seen all of her medical records of the past five years put into the public record. That's a horrifying prospect for anybody, particularly a 20-year-old girl."
