A Wyoming student was arrested late last week for trespassing at her school after refusing to follow her school district’s mask mandate.
Grace Smith, 16, was arrested and handcuffed on Oct. 7 after she returned to Laramie High School after serving two consecutive two-days suspensions for refusing to follow the mandate. Smith, a junior, received another two-day suspension after refusing for the third time to follow the mandate. She has received $1,000 in citations for refusing to leave the school grounds.
Smith’s father, Andy Smith, posted online the video of his daughter getting arrested by the Laramie Police Department.
According to the Laramie Bommerang, the arrest caused a lockdown.
In a short statement, the school district acknowledged the “brief lockdown,”
