On Thursday, October 10, 2019, at approximately 7:13 a.m., Matthews officers responded to Butler High School regarding a lockdown that was due to an altercation among several students. As a precautionary measure for the safety of students/staff, Butler staff implemented a lockdown and notified the assigned on-campus Matthews Police Department SRO, who immediately responded to the area of the disturbance.
One student was taken into custody and charged with Assault. After all follow up security measures were checked by Matthews Officers as well as CMS Security, the lockdown was lifted and classes resumed.
