   CRAIGMONT, Idaho (AP) -- Parents say a man in northcentral Idaho caused a chaotic altercation at a local school where fifth graders said he choked at least one student and tripped and verbally abused others.


   KLEW-TV reports the incident at Highland School in Craigmont happened on Monday, but parents -- not school officials -- ultimately called police to report what happened.


   The man, whose son attends the school, was taken into custody on separate, unrelated charges.


   On Thursday, a dispatcher for the Lewis County Sheriff's Office declined to release the man's name to The Associated Press and Sheriff Brian Brokop didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment.


   One mother, Tammy Miller, said her 11-year-old daughter described a chaotic classroom scene.
   Highland School District officials say they're investigating but offered few details.
