A suspect drove a stolen vehicle across the lower platte of the Midway during the Middle School baseball practice in an attempt to avoid pursuit by police April 17, according to a statement sent home to families by the Lab Schools Associate Director Christopher Jones. The police vehicle continued to follow the suspect across the Midway. No students, coaches or members of the community were hurt in the incident.

In consultation with the university, Lab will continue to take advantage of the public spaces the surround the campus.

“We take precautions to the best of our ability where we use those public spaces,” Mr. Jones said. “This random, strange incident is not part of a pattern, it’s not part of a regular occurrence, and we don’t think it gives us reason to stop using those public spaces.”
