Woman charged in connection with false gun threat at school
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A woman accused of making a false gun threat that sent 18 officers to a Rapid City elementary school is facing four charges.
Authorities say 29-year-old Rick Peck, of Rapid City, was charged Friday with three counts of false reporting and one count of disturbance of a school in connection with the Wednesday incident. Peck has pleaded not guilty.
The threat prompted officials at Pinedale Elementary to put the school in lockdown status.
Police say Peck is prone to seizures and has a history of erratic behavior and hallucinations. Her next court date is Sept. 28.
