NEW CARLISLE – A 13-year-old New Prairie Middle School student has been arrested on suspicion of felony intimidation after an alleged threat she made caused the school to be put on lockout Friday.

Throughout the weekend, La Porte County Sheriff's Deputy Paul Adams – the New Prairie United School Corporation School resource officer – investigated the threat, which also resulted in late dismissal at the middle school, according to the sheriff's department.
