The man who caused a lockdown at a Des Moines middle school in October will go to trial next month.
Thirty-five-year-old Ryan Collier is charged with harassment, domestic abuse, and interference with official acts.
This week, a Polk County judge set his trial date for January 6th.
On October 29th, Collier allegedly threatened the mother of his children inside the school offices at Merrill Middle School. Witnesses told police they heard him say he had a gun.
The school was put on lockdown and collier was arrested after a two-hour manhunt in the neighborhood near the school.
