A victory for the
LPD Rebel Alliance?
The incident occurred yesterday outside of Brickett Elementary School on Lewis Street.
A police spokesperson confirms that there was an arrest made for “Disturbing the school” and “Loitering within 1000ft of a school.”
According to Lynn Police, the Brickett Principal called them out of concern. Students were held in the school past closing and parents had to stay away until the arrest was made.
These photos were posted to a public page on social media, photographer unknown but contact was made with one of the distributors of the photos.
Editor’s note: Now, holding a gun-like thing, no matter how fake, especially near a school but anywhere in public, is never a good idea. Besides, there are still some folks out there who haven’t seen Star Wars. To them, this can only be very frightening. A colleague of mine saw this picture and the only thing she noticed was the gun. She didn’t recognize the costume.
