Pleasanton man arrested following Lydiksen Elementary School lock down

Wednesday's lock down lifted at 2 p.m.

A 27-year-old Pleasanton resident was arrested Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of brandishing a weapon and making criminal threats, which caused Lydiksen Elementary School to be placed on lock down.

Pleasanton police responded to a residence on Foothill Road, in the vicinity of Lydiksen, after the parents reported their son brandished a knife and threatened to kill them.

The son, later identified as Christopher Kliment, allegedly fled as officers were enroute.

Due to safety concerns and the unknown whereabouts of Kliment, the school on Highlands Oaks Drive was placed on lock down, police said.

"This was precautionary and at no time was there an indication the suspect was an immediate threat or danger to the staff or children," said Sgt. Pat Walsh.

He was detained without incident.

Police said the weapon used in the brandishing was recovered at the residence.

While it is possible that that his parents still love him, I don't think it would be a good idea 4 him 2 return home.
On the flip side, where will he go? Will jail make him a new person? We can only hope he learned a lesson and will be a law abiding citizen.

Unless involved in his family's business, a 27 year old man shouldn't be sticking around his parents' place. Time for him to go out and find his own way in the world.

Yep, if he had it together he would have moved out long ago.

It's a bit embarrassing for your date to learn you still live at home when your 27. I'll bet he doesn't have that problem though.

Hopefully he makes a few friends and learns a useful trade while locked up in Santa Rita, hope the parents are smart enough to change their locks.

Unfortunately when someone gets in the news this way they are judged by whatever mistakes they may have made, but I know Chrissy very well and he has been a really great friend. The kind that shows up whenever your feeling down or need a friend. The kind that wants nothing more than to be with his own son. The kind that just needs to know his real friends are here to say Chrissy you gotta stop being so angry and know you can call me for anything if you need it I got your back. Thanks for being there when I went through it. Love u champ, now get it together. Call me
