BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – In recent months, state leaders have prioritized measures meant to increase campus safety within Louisiana’s K-12 schools.
Amid such efforts, any potential threats to schools and to the individuals within these institutions are approached with extreme caution.
Along those lines, over the weekend a Metairie man was jailed after he was found wandering a secured K-12 campus in Baton Rouge, authorities say.
According to an official report completed by an LSU Police Officer, 19-year-old Christian Daly allegedly jumped the six foot high fence that surrounds the perimeter of the University Laboratory School.
The Lab School, which serves K-12 students and is located within LSU’s campus along Dalrymple Drive, is considered part of the LSU system.
Officers say Daly was found wandering school grounds shortly after 1 a.m., Sunday.
When asked what he was doing, officers said Daly replied, “Just walking.”
Upon searching Daly, officers say he was found with a fraudulent Georgia driver’s license.
Daly was subsequently arrested and booked on charges of unauthorized entry of a place of business and unlawful production, manufacturing, distribution, or possession of fraudulent documents for identification purposes.
