Argument leads to 911 phone call

August 22, 2007

A 911 call sent Tonganoxie Police to the Tonganoxie school district office Thursday morning regarding an argument between Superintendent Richard Erickson and director of operations James Brun.

However, no complaints were filed with the police department, Chief Kenny Carpenter said Monday.

"I know there was a disturbance," Carpenter said.

"Right now there's no information we can give out. There's been no complaint and right now there's no report done on it. Unless someone comes in and does a complaint there won't be a report."

Carpenter said he was unsure whether the 911 call came from the board office or from someone outside the office.

Carpenter said the incident was just an argument.

"That's all it really amounted to," he said. "If someone would sign a complaint that may change things, but as of now, no one has signed a complaint about anything."

On Tuesday, Erickson said he could not discuss the matter.

"I can't share any information on issues like that," Erickson said.

Brun also declined to comment Tuesday.
