UPDATE (1:10 p.m.) – The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office has released new information about an incident that resulted in a lockdown at Atascadero High School Friday morning.

Sheriff’s officials say it all started at around 8:15 a.m. in the area of O’Donovan Rd. in Creston when deputies tried to contact a woman who was sleeping in her vehicle. She reportedly refused to acknowledge the deputies and when they checked the vehicle’s license and registration, discovered the woman had a suspended license and several equipment violations.

The sheriff’s office says deputies attempted to contact the woman a second time but she drove off, leading them on a low-speed pursuit.

A spike strip was reportedly successful in blowing out two of the car’s tires but the woman continued driving until coming to a dead end in the parking lot at Atascadero High School where deputies then took her into custody.

Sheriff’s officials say the pursuit lasted about 25 minutes and the school was locked down for a short time as a result of the arrest.
