Police tonight arrested a Tacoma man at Whitman Elementary School after he waved signs and threatened people attending an education forum headlined by U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks, police said.

The dissident was standing outside the campus at 1120 S. 39th St. His arrest, which he resisted, took place seven minutes after the forum on educational issues kicked off.

The event was hosted by the Whitman Elementary School PTSA.
