According to court documents, Trestin Addison was arrested and charged with criminal mischief. Addison was the man police found found in the drivers seat of a car in front of Whittier elementary holding a knife. 

Court documents state after a brief standoff, Addison was taken into custody. While on the scene Addison's mother told police that he had been staying with her. After waiving his rights, Addison told an officer that "he doesn't like be left alone; therefore, he destroyed items in the apartment he was staying in out of frustration. He then broke out a window and leapt from the building as a means of getting to his leaving mother quicker. 


Whittier elementary was put on lock down for a brief period, but no students or faculty were harmed in the incident.


A large police presence at Whittier Elementary School in Great Falls Monday afternoon at least one man in police custody. 

The KFBB newsroom received initial reports at about 3:20pm. According to Great Falls Police, an incident outside of the school involving at least one man with a weapon led to the school being put on a temporary lock down. 

Witnesses at the scene tell KFBB the man was not cooperating with police, and was hiding inside a parked car. Police then had to smash the window to get him out. 

The lock down has since been lifted and parents were able to pick up their children shortly after the incident. 

It is still unclear at this time who the man is, or what he was doing that led to police taking him into custody.
