Police were called to Blaine High School Wednesday, Feb. 13, after a Rollerblading man interrupted a class full of students, according to the Blaine Police Department.
The 32-year-old man told police he had entered the campus via a back driveway and was hoping to take a shortcut across the school grounds. He got lost amid the buildings and accidentally skated into the classroom while trying to find his way off of the campus, Blaine Police Chief Mike Haslip said.
There were about 30 students in the class who stared at him as he stood there for a couple seconds before skating back out of the room and off campus.
Faculty at the school called police as soon as they found out he was on the campus. A few minutes later, police got a tip that the man was at Ace Hardware, where they found him looking at merchandise.
His behavior at the school gave police cause to cite him for disorderly conduct and trespassing. An officer found a 2-inch pocket knife in the man’s pocket, though he never referred to it or made threats at the school or the store.
