RENO, Nev. (AP) - A visit by a parent of a special-needs student prompted a lockdown of the Washoe County School District administrative building in Reno.

Larry Dailey was given a trespass warning by Reno police after district officials said he entered a restricted area, caused a disturbance and wouldn’t leave the building, which includes Superintendent Pedro Martinez’s office.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports (https://on.rgj.com/1l4ZRW8 ) the University of Nevada, Reno journalism professor was trying to file a complaint alleging bullying and intimidation by Martinez.

Dailey was arrested in June 2013 on suspicion of violating a trespass warning when he tried to testify at a school board meeting about the district’s handling of problems involving his daughter’s education.

Criminal charges against Dailey were later dropped and he received a $17,500 settlement. The district also dropped the trespass warning that led to the arrest.
