Lexington County law enforcement officers spent hours negotiating with a nude man who threatened to do harm to himself on the Lake Murray Dam Monday, March 24, and finally convinced him to change his mind.
According to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department, sheriff’s deputies and Irmo police officers arrived on the scene just before noon and determined he was threatening to harm himself by jumping into a rock-filled area along the dam.
It was after 7 p.m. when he finally agreed to give up his threat, according to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department. He was taken to a hospital where he was undergoing a mental evaluation.
New Middle School Planned in Chapin
The Lexington-Richland District 5 School Board agreed at its March 24 meeting to contract for construction of a new middle school.
The board approved a measure that would allow the administration to negotiate a contract not to exceed $17.7 million from the lowest responsible bid. Plans call for the new school to open in August of 2015.
Board members said the middle school, which will be located adjacent to the district’s newest school, Spring Hill High on Broad River Road, is the last project to be funded by the $243 million bond referendum approved by voters in 2008.
