Police called to Harrisburg school board meeting
HARRISBURG — Police officers were called to a central Pennsylvania school board meeting when a lawyer attempted to hold a news conference.
The four officers showed up at the Friday afternoon meeting as opposing groups of board members discussed a possible lawsuit, the Patriot-News of Harrisburg reported.
Susquehanna Township school district lawyer Paul Blunt said he had been meeting with school board members concerning an expected lawsuit by other board members against the school district and Superintendent Susan Kegerise.
Attorney Bret Keisling said the school board members he represents were excluded from an executive meeting and that he wanted to hold a news conference to discuss that.
No charges were filed in the incident.
