GREAT FALLS — D’Andre Moses of Ronan was arrested following an incident that caused a brief lockdown on Thursday at K. William Harvey School in Ronan.

The school was locked down at about 2:15 p.m. due to a low-speed chase by officers of a man - later identified as Moses - riding a miniature motorcycle carrying a three-year old child.

Lake County Sheriff Don Bell says law enforcement attempted to stop Moses near the intersection of Sixth Avenue West and Round Butte Road, but he failed to stop.

Moses drove to the school and then off the road, and began driving the motorcycle across the playground while students were out at recess, according to Sheriff Bell.

Shortly after the lockdown, Moses was arrested without harm to him or the child; there is no word on whether it is his child.

Moses, 21 years old, was taken to the Lake County Jail in Polson, and has been charged with criminal endangerment.
