RIMROCK, AZ (CBS5) -
A man who became agitated after school officials refused to follow his orders and remove two students sparked a school lockdown, Yavapai County sheriff's officials said.
The incident occurred Wednesday at Rimrock High School in Yavapai County.
Office staff asked Jeremy Whagado, 22, to leave the building after he insisted workers provide a list of students since he said he could not remember the two students' names, YCSO said.
As he became more agitated, he mentioned the recent Connecticut school tragedy, but did not make any direct threats, sheriff's deputies said.
The staff told investigators they were very concerned about his behavior, instituted a school lockdown and called YCSO. A few minutes later, Whagado left the school grounds in a very disgruntled state, investigators said.
Deputies said they found Whagado near a gas station just south of the school. Whagado was detained and appeared disoriented and confused, YCSO said.
He was not carrying any weapons. Whagado informed deputies of prior mental health issues, YCSO said.
Whagado remains in custody on a $7,500 bond pending a January 2013 court date.
