East Junior High School was briefly on lockdown Tuesday morning due to "a suspicious individual in the parking lot," according to Boise School District officials.

Monica Walters-Wolfe, a 34-year-old Nampa woman, was arrested at the scene and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and misdemeanor resisting and obstructing arrest.

According to a Boise Police Department press release, officers responded to the school and advised a lockdown "after being made aware of a threat against an adult at the school."

When officers arrived at the school, they found Walters-Wolfe in a car in the school's parking lot. Police said she "had no lawful reason to be at the school."

No further details were immediately available.
