Barricaded man incident causes school to briefly lockdown
Police: Domestic situation escalates, requiring tactical team to extract man
PRAIRIE DU SAC, Wis. — Sauk Prairie schools were locked down for a little more than an hour Wednesday morning due to what police called an escalated domestic situation nearby.
Sauk Prairie police said a report of an out-of-control man destroying property the 400 block of Broadway in Prairie Du Sac came at about 8:30 a.m.
Prairie du Sac School District superintendent Cliff Thompson said students began the lockdown at 10:15 a.m. Thompson said police told him there is no threat to students or staff.
Police said Michael Glynn , 48, of Prairie du Sac, had barricaded himself in the basement at the home, which is about 2.5 blocks from a grade school. Police said officers tried to make contact and found evidence that items had been destroyed and Glynn may have been injured.
The Sauk Prairie Police Department brought in a tactical team and removed Glynn.
Glynn was in custody at Sauk County Jail on suspicion of a probation violation, disorderly conduct, false imprisonment, domestic-related disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and criminal damage to property, according to police.
Police also said officers believed Glynn may have been intoxicated and armed with a knife during the incident.
Thompson said due to the lockdown, students in early learning 4K program would be held longer than usual. Parents of kids in the 4K program will be notified through the communication system when students can be picked up, the superintendent said.
The afternoon 4K program is canceled Wednesday, Thompson said.
Sauk Praire police were assisted by the Sauk County Sheriff’s Department K-9 unit and Emergency Response Team, Sauk Prairie paramedics, and the Prairie du Sac Fire Department.
