GRIDLEY, Calif. - A Gridley woman is behind bars after reportedly driving onto the Gridley High School campus Tuesday morning and crashing into the snack bar.
Gridley Police Sergeant Rodney Harr said 25-year-old Cassandra Arellano drove onto the back of the school property.
The incident prompted a lockdown just after 10 a.m. and was lifted about 30 minutes later.
Harr said that Arrellano was not armed and that nobody was injured in the incident. Police said they did a field sobriety test on Arrellano and arrested her for being under the influence of alcohol or drugs. She was booked into the Butte County Jail.
Gridley High School Principal Justin Kern said he was impressed by how the students and staff handled the situation.
"I'm very pleased with student and staff response," he said. "The way students and staff responded, the way Gridley police responded, you never want to go through that, but [I'm] very pleased with the way everybody responded."
Around 650 students attend Gridley High School and Kern said parents were notified after the lockdown ended.
