Hagerstown police investigate disturbance at Bester

March 21, 2012

City police officers responded to the area of Bester Elementary School on South Potomac Street in Hagerstown Wednesday afternoon for a report of two men involved in a dispute.

Police were told that one of the men had a tire iron and the other  a knife, Hagerstown police Sgt. Rebecca Fetchu said.

However, “neither one of them had anything on them,” Fetchu said.

The dispute stemmed from an issue involving one of the men’s children. It first emerged about two years ago, but apparently resurfaced Wednesday, Fetchu said.

Both men shook hands and agreed to resolve the issue, Fetchu said.

Bester Elementary School was locked down briefly while officials determined what was happening, according to Washington County Public Schools spokesman Richard Wright.

The incident occurred about the same time that classes were ending at the school.

The dispute apparently started across the street from Bester Elementary, Fetchu said. Officers were talking to each man separately on the school grounds, then the men started talking to each other.
