[5/4/17] A student who took Star Wars Day a little too far sparked the evacuation of Ashwaubenon High School Thursday morning.
Ashwaubenon Public Safety says a concerned parent called police after seeing a person walking into the school wearing unusual clothes and carrying a bag. The parent thought the person may have been wearing a bulletproof vest or a flak jacket.
Students were instructed not to go into the school, and instead directed to meet at rally points in the community while the school was searched.
Eventually, police say they figured out that the student who sparked the scare was wearing a stormtrooper costume to school.
The student made a mistake, principal Brian Nelsen said. Costumes are not allowed at Ashwaubenon High School.
