A Madison County schools computer specialist is charged in connection to a conflict that cancelled classes Monday.
Police arrested the employee, network specialist Christopher Snoddy, and charged him with misdemeanor assault and battery on a family or household member, who is also his co-worker. Administrators chose to close all four public schools in Madison County after they learned about the developing conflict between Snoddy and the reported victim.
Madison school administrators met with law enforcement Sunday afternoon, where they made the call to close schools. They released a statement saying the threat of a possible confrontation caused concern for the safety of students and staff.
The Louisa County Sheriff's Office confirms deputies picked up 33-year-old Snoddy shortly before 3:30 Monday morning.
Police were out canvassing the school grounds Sunday night and Monday morning.
The Madison County Sheriff's Office refused to speak about the situation but said the school board would answer all inquiries. Madison's school superintendent says, right now, the schools have no comment in addition to Monday's statement.
Snoddy is due in court for a hearing on Monday October 28.
