A Sacramento school was placed on lock down this morning as police and K9 chased a man acting strangely wielding a small ax.

Sac police officers responded to the 3000 block of K Street shortly before 9 a.m. today after multiple witnesses reported a man armed with a small ax.

The man ran from the officers toward Sutter Middle School, which was placed on lock down as a precaution.

Two K9 officers responded, chased down the man -- who was resisting arrest -- and took him down. Police arrested 44-year-old Anthony Smith for weapon and resisting arrest charges.
